Thoughts on Digital Crime

Last week I spoke at and attended cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 High Technology Crime Investigation Association International Conference and Expo 2004. The keynote speaker was US Attorney General John Ashcroft. Although I spent time furiously copying notes on his speech, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 text is online. Not printed in that text was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 AG's repeated cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation are committed to "protecting lives and liberty." I thought this was a curious stance given cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recent efforts to scale back cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Patriot Act. The AG mentioned that "protect[ing] cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 United States against cyber-based attacks and high-technology crimes" is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number 3 FBI priority.

I believe that if you are a low- to mid-skilled intruder physically located in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 United States, you will eventually be caught. The days when hardly anyone cared about prosecuting digital crime are ending. The FBI has 13 Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property (CHIPS) units with plans to open more. The Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS) are available to US Attorneys across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country. The Secret Service operates 15 Electronic Crimes Task Forces. There are 5 Regional Computer Forensic Laboratories operating now with 8 planned to open in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 coming years. The Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) is taking reports from victims of cyber crime and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 National White Collar Crime Center supports law enforcement efforts. All of this adds up to a lot of federal, state, and local police working to bust bad guys.
