  • The Justice Department is asking Congress for more resources to fight cybercrime. Yesterday, a top official told Senators cyber criminals are becoming so sophisticated that the department, and the FBI in particular, are adapting their tactics and tools on a minute-by-minute basis. That might not be fast enough. The FBI estimates 500 million computers are infected by botnets each year, meaning that there are 18 victims per second. Levi Gundert is a former secret service agent and now a technical lead with Cisco's Threat Research, Analysis and Communications team. He told Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive that the government deserves credit for building partnerships that can track and find cyber criminals.
