Cyber Crime Spotlight: Computer Intrusions

One of the main priorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is what is known as computer intrusions. To the layman, this known as the use of bots, worms, viruses, spyware and malware to gain unauthorized access to certain data. The form of criminal activity can be classified as terrorism or counter-intelligence and is seen as both a national and international threat to security.

For this reason, the FBI considers it to be a top priority of their Cyber Division and use "specially trained cyber squads" to investigate and track down those who are allegedly behind these forms of attacks. They also have developed close working relationships with other national agencies to pair up on these forms of intrusions, including the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. For this reason, should you become criminally charged, you will often find yourself facing federal charges with stiff penalties. It will become imperative that you get a hard-hitting attorney on your side to fight for you.
