The Justice Department’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section is establishing a cyber security unit as a result of the increased resiliency and volume of cyber attacks. The responsibilities of the new defense unit will be to work with Congress on cyber security legislation as well as to provide legal guidance on digital surveillance investigations. The goals of the new cyber team is to catch cyber scammers, prevent attacks, and ultimately keep Americans safe. In order to achieve these goals, the budget for cyber security efforts is predicted to grow to nearly $1.1 trillion. If the House of Representatives and Senate agree to pass this bill, the U.S. will see a safer 2015 in terms of cyber security.
