FBI, Utah Partner for Cyber Data Sharing Pilot; Richard McFeely Comments

CyberCrimeKeyboardThe FBI will work with the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Bureau of Investigation under an information sharing pilot program, through which the state agency will access the bureau’s cybercrime databases, FCW reported Thursday.

Mark Rockwell writes the program with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center is intended for expansion to other state and local law enforcement users.

Richard McFeely, executive assistant director of the FBI’s criminal, cyber, response and services branch , said a goal of the program is to ensure that cybercrimes can be prosecuted outside of federal court.

An IC3 team will work to create an actionable intelligence package of data related to Internet fraud activities for specific geographic regions under the program, Rockwell reports.
