Former FBI Director Robert Mueller: Cyber Capabilities Critical for All Investigations

RobertMuellerRobert Mueller, former director of FBI, has lauded the federal bureau’s ongoing efforts to build up its cyber capabilities and workforce, FCW reported Thursday.

Adam Mazmanian writes Mueller told a gathering at the Cybersecurity Law Institute at Georgetown University Law Center that FBI is working to raise awareness of cyber threats across the entire agency.

FCW reports the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force works to assemble agencies such as the National Security Agency and Homeland Security Department to maintain cyber data.

Mueller emphasized the collaboration between those agencies in order to detect crime organizations that perpetrate cyber attacks, according to the report.

Mazmanian writes Mueller also recommended that cyber personnel acquire skills to monitor and combat cyber threats offline and outside of Washington.

“To know and understand any investigation, you have to have some level of cyber understanding,” Mueller said.
