The FBI has become active in partnering with local agencies across the United States, as part of its Next Generation Cyber Initiative - understanding that cyberattacks continue to expand and evolve at a rapid pace.

 

"The task force model that has been successfully employed in response to bank robbery and terrorism cases is now being applied to the cyber realm," said George Venizelos, FBI Assistant Director, in a statement. "The FBI continues to develop positive working relationships with our fellow law enforcement officers in our joint efforts to tackle criminal activity, and we look forward to working with our partners at the NYPD and MTA to combat cybercrime."
