FBI Cyber Agents at Work

We are building our lives around our wired and wireless networks. The question is, are we ready to work together to defend them?

The FBI certainly is. We lead the national effort to investigate high-tech crimes, including cyber-based terrorism, espionage, computer intrusions, and major cyber fraud. To stay in front of current and emerging trends, we gather and share information and intelligence with public and private sector partners worldwide.
