Cybercrime is a general term describing criminal activities carried out using a computer, network, or another set of digital devices. Consider cyber crime the umbrella over the vast range of illegal activities cyber criminals commit. These include hacking, phishing, identity theft, data breaches, ransomware, and malware attacks, among many others.
The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating cyber attacks and intrusions. They collect and share intelligence and engage with victims while working to unmask those committing malicious cyber activities, wherever they are.
If you believe you are a victim or a witness of online or internet-enabled crime, report it to the FBI by calling 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit a tip at tips.fbi.gov.

We organize programs for schools to educate students on how to safely and responsibly use the Internet. The program emphasizes the importance of cyber safety topics such as password security, smart surfing habits, and safeguarding personal information. We also organize programs for businesses to educate them about potential risks and how to protect their businesses.
