Binance has appointed Jarek Jakubcek as the new head of intelligence and investigations for Asia-Pacific. As a prominent global expert in cybercrime and a former crypto specialist in Europola’s cybercrime branch, he will almost certainly bring a wealth of information to the table that may be used to keep digital assets safe and out of the hands of adversaries.
With its growing role in the industry comes growing responsibility, which Binance is taking the lead on. This is evidenced by Binanceâs ongoing support of law enforcement investigations and recent strategic moves, including hiring an impressive team of key personnel in both its investigations and compliance teams. I am proud to join Binance and work alongside the most experienced and talented team within the blockchain industry, including former law enforcement colleagues. It will be our duty to ensure efficient cooperation with law enforcement agencies and prosecutors in the detection and prevention of criminal activities. Together, we will be stamping out illicit activities from the blockchain ecosystem and ensure that Binance remains the safest exchange in the world.
Tigran Gambaryan the global head of intelligence and investigations at Binance said:
Jarek is a hugely impressive cybercrime expert with connections to law enforcement agencies all over the world. His role will be pivotal in ensuring that Binance works effectively with police and prosecutors to keep the Binance ecosystem and wider crypto industry secure. As the worlds leading exchange, Binance is totally committed to take the lead on crypto security.
