Synopsis

The federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a national agency dedicated to investigation federal crimes. Founded as a small team of special agents on July 26, 1908, the Bureau was first charged with enforcing the growing body of federal laws covering the United States as a whole. Almost from the beginning of its 100-year history, the Bureau has been the subject of legend and controversy. It has also evolved into a vast and sophisticated national law-enforcement agency. Whether as a federal crime-fighting force or a source of investigative support of local and state police forces, the modern FBI strives to embody its ideals of fidelity, bravery, and integrity.

Computers have changed the way people do business, gather information, communicate...and engage in crime. From remote locations in cyber space, criminals can break into a computer and steal valuable information, including credit card and social security numbers, leading to the theft of people's money and identities. Today, the FBI attacks cyber crime by using sophisticated technology and developing wide-ranging partnerships with companies, academic communities, law enforcement agencies, and concerned individuals-all determined to protect the online community from scam artists, predators, and thieves.
