Timothy J. Healy was appointed director of the Terrorist Screening Center in May 2009.
The TSC is an FBI organization tasked with identifying suspected or potential terrorists and administering the government’s terrorist watchlist.
Prior to being named TSC director, Healy served as an FBI special agent and as a program manager in the FBI Headquarters Economic Crime Unit, focusing on telemarketing fraud.
In 2000, he initiated the Internet Fraud Complaint Center and was promoted as its first unit chief. During the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Healy and his staff developed a website to receive online tips which became the basis for the “Submit a Tip” feature of the FBI’s website.
As a supervisory special agent, Healy developed a software system to track suspicious activity, which was later adopted by FBI Headquarters and is now known as GUARDIAN.
Healy graduated from Benedictine University in 1979 and began his career as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.
