Justice Department to Create Dedicated Cyber Unit

December 05, 2014  | 

The Department of Justice is creating a dedicated cybersecurity unit within its Criminal Division, Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said Thursday, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The unit will serve as a central hub for law enforcement officials on legal guidance regarding the criminal electronic surveillance statutes that cover complex cyber investigations, Ms. Caldwell said, according to prepared remarks delivered at the Cybercrime 2020 Symposium.

The unit is intended to ensure that law enforcement’s electronic surveillance tools are effectively used, while also protecting the privacy of Americans, she said.

The unit will be housed within the department’s computer crime and intellectual property section and will coordinate with the private sector on information sharing about cyber threats and advise Congress on cybersecurity legislation, Ms. Caldwell said.
