Congressional bills target cyber crime, law enforcement training

Do you think that law enforcement agencies and government regulators at the local, state and federal levels are paying much attention to so-called "cybercrime" these days?

That is squarely a rhetorical question that hardly requires a response in 2017. Cybercrime is a big deal, flat out In fact, many commentators on the subject matter believe that cybercrime -- that is, identifying and preventing it, as well as mitigating its downsides when it has already occurred -- is at the top of the list of concerns facing entities ranging from banks and retailers to service providers and national governments.

What exactly is the focus when it comes to cybercrime?

We can certainly answer that at the San Francisco Bay Area Law Office of John W. Noonan, from which we provide diligent criminal defense advocacy on behalf of Californians who need urgent and immediate assistance with broad-based legal concerns.

We note succinctly on our website that cybercrime is "generally defined as criminal activity involving an information technology infrastructure."

That often points to computers and the Internet, although not exclusively so. Subject matter often cited as being closely connected with cybercrime includes identity theft and forgery, hacking, data and/or system interference and unauthorized access to proprietary programs and accounts.

Tandem legislation that has recently been introduced in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives calls for a beefed-up National Computer Forensics Unit, which is a facility that has been operating since 2008. The core mandate of the NCFI is to provide cybercrime training for local and state officials in California and across the country.

If approved, new funding will allow for a material expansion in training programs that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa, a sponsor of the Senate bill) says will help an influx of new trainees "utilize computer forensics to gather evidence and solve cases."

Clearly, there is a strong spotlight on cybercrime presently at the highest levels of the American government, which underscores stepped-up surveillance on select individuals.

Any person having questions regarding cyber and electronic crime or concerns regarding a government probe or investigation can reach out to a proven criminal defense attorney with a demonstrated background in cybercrime defense representation for candid guidance and, when necessary, strong legal advocacy.
