How the FBI Investigates Cyber Crime

“The FBI’s Cyber Program depends on a collaborative, information-sharing centric partnership with the private sector – a model where information flows in both directions. The FBI remains committed to the identification, pursuit, and defeat of malicious cyber actors and groups.”

Supervisory Special Agent Enrique Alvarez of FBI San Francisco's Cyber Branch will give a presentation on cybersecurity and the how the FBI investigates cybercrime. SSA Alvarez will provide an overview of how malicious cyber actors perpetrate cybercrime and how they are organized. SSA Alvarez will conclude by describing best practices in how to protect yourself from being victimized by computer intrusion. Questions and answers will follow the presentation.
