Homeland Security Today: Justice Department Creates Cyber Unit to Provide Legal Guidance on Electronic Surveillance

Just days after the FBI aerted US businesses to be on the lookout for malicious malware like the kind that took down the internal network of Sony Pictures, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced plans to create a cybercrime unit to advise on electronic surveillance in cyber investigations and work with the private sector to prevent online crime.
 
Housed within DOJ’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS), the unit will work with Congress, law enforcement and private sector on cybercrime prevention, Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell said during a speech at the Cybercrime 2020 Symposium at Georgetown Law Center last Thursday.
 
“Given the growing complexity and volume of cyberattacks, as well as the intricate rubric of laws and investigatory tools needed to thwart the attacks, the cybersecurity unit will play an important role in this field,” Caldwell said. “It is important that we address cyber threats on multiple fronts, with both a robust enforcement strategy as well as a broad prevention strategy.”
 
Caldwell believes the new unit will help counter the growing public distrust of law enforcement surveillance and high-tech investigative techniques in the wake of the massive leak of classified information by former defense contractor Edward Snowden.
 
Amid debate that privacy and civil liberties are afterthoughts in criminal investigations, Caldwell explained that most of the mistrust boils down to “misconceptions about the technical abilities of the law enforcement tools and the manners in which they are used.”
 
Caldwell referenced a white paper released by DOJ in May 2014 that addressed uncertainty in the private sector over whether the Electronic Communications Privacy Act prohibits sharing specific types of cyber threat information. Recognizing that the private sector would benefit from a better understanding of how DOJ interprets electronic communications statutes, the white paper presented a legal analysis of how companies could lawfully share information with the government.
 
“Ensuring that information concerning cyber threats that US companies detect on their domestic networks can be quickly shared will assist those companies in identifying new threats and implementing appropriate preventative cybersecurity measures,” the white paper said. “But sharing must occur without contravening federal law or the protections afforded individual privacy and civil liberties.”
 
Caldwell stated the white paper is an example of the type of outreach the cybersecurity unit will conduct, which she explained, “will ensure that the powerful law enforcement tools are effectively used to bring the perpetrators [of crimes] to justice while also protecting the privacy of everyday Americans.”

Roger Smith's curator insight, March 23, 2015 8:58 PM

“Bad actors or hackers often look to individuals’ devices — from computers to smartphones and tablets — as a way into larger networks,” Mr. Warrene points out.

While a social media account can be hacked, of greater concern is the way the breach may potentially provide access to the device that is used by its owner to enter and use the social media account.

Access to the device can possibly lead to hacks into business networks, causing the leak of confidential data or, worse, infect many other systems on that network.
