FBI Cyber Branch

FBI Cyber Branch is the agency that is responding to the increased cyber-based crimes.

Operation Card Shop took place in 12 countries and on four continents. Eleven of the arrests took place in the U.S. Two of them happened in New York, home to the FBI’s first Cyber Branch, which was created as the agency’s response to what it called an “increase in cyber-based crimes” in a statement that also suggested hackers are not outside the reach of law enforcement.
