FBI rolls out round-the-clock cyber crime team
The FBI has introduced a team of specialists, which will be on call 24/7, to investigate cyber threats affecting businesses, critical industries and domestic security -- and possibly determine who's behind on them.
Richard McFeely, executive assistant director of the bureau's criminal, cyber, response and services branch, announced the “Next Generation Cyber Initiative” last Friday in a statement on FBI's website.
Under the program, investigators now will be able to send findings of suspicious cyber activity to a round-the-clock post for scrutiny. The statement said the team will consist of “specially trained computer scientists able to extract hackers' digital signatures from mountains of malicious code.”
