This chapter begins with a discussion of the threat of cyber crime. These threats can range from individual phishing emails that trick victims into disclosing personal and financial information, to computer viruses and keystroke loggers that steal victims' passwords, to the theft of valuable intellectual property over the Internet. A cyber attack could have an enormous, possibly devastating, impact on the economy as well as to cripple individual businesses and services. The chapter describes the some of the work that assistant U.S. attorneys in the Southern District of New York have been doing to combat cyber crime. This includes working with law enforcement partners in the United States and abroad, which has translated into a string of successes in the war on cyber crime. The discussion then turns to the importance of collaboration in cyber crime cases, not only among law enforcement agencies, but also between government and industry.
