Brian Krebs talks to the FBI on cybercrime



Just found this interesting post at the Security Fix. It seems Brian has had a chance to ask a question of the FBI director Robert Mueller and to speak with the assistant director in the Cyber Division. There are some interesting answers to his questions.



Among the things I thought were most interesting was that they were starting to look at the networks behind computer crime as opposed to just the individuals breaking the law. (I guess this is the “follow the money” principle…) They do investigate Cyber crime alongside other “three letter” federal agencies and of course, don’t disclose information until the case has made it completely through the justice system.

The main thing is that they’re not necessarily looking at the scoresheet of how many arrests and indictments they net, but on disrupting and dismantling the structures that support cybercrime. Additionally they’re working to develop relationships with agencies in other countries where much of the cybercrime is centered.

Interesting stuff.
