The FBI is trying to crank up its efforts against cyber crime.
Over the next few weeks, the bureau is expected to announce new searches, charges and arrests of cyber criminals, Reuters reports .
“There is a philosophy change. If you are going to attack Americans, we are going to hold you accountable,” the FBI’s Robert Anderson told the Reuters Cybersecurity Summit in Washington. “If we can reach out and touch you, we are going to reach out and touch you.”
Anderson, who took over the cyber program in March, said the FBI will exhibit “a much more offensive side.”
The result will be more arrests of more serious cyber criminals, he said.
