OpSec’s Investigative Services Group provides comprehensive investigative enforcement programs, from delivering evidentiary support for litigation to driving law enforcement intervention, working directly with clients’ Legal and Brand Enforcement Divisions to meet their brand protection and loss prevention goals. The group partners with customers to design and deliver clear and concise prosecution plans, evaluating and advising on current brand enforcement activities, undertaking marketplace sweeps, and maximizing supply chain logistical practices for OpSec’s customers.
A certified Criminal and Civil Investigator, Chaffin has a proven track record for security management, asset protection, investigation leadership, and law enforcement operations management, both nationally and internationally. He has built his career working in law enforcement, security, and investigative services for over 30 years, most recently as Operations Director for North America’s Investigative Solutions Network.

Further, Chaffin has served as a Cross-Designated Taskforce Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice and is a certified Cyber Security professional. His extensive experience covers both online investigations and large-scale international on-the-ground enforcement activities.

From the creation of evidence dossiers to enabling our customers to engage effectively with law enforcement agencies around the world, OpSec’s powerful investigative services programs empower our customers to expand on the other OpSec online and on-product protections we provide,” stated Chaffin. “This is important work that subverts the ongoing efforts of bad actors attempting to carry out nefarious activity on the brands we are entrusted to protect.”
