From the opening of Robert S. Mueller's speech: "From the opening of Robert S. Mueller's speech: 'We live in a wired world. Our networks help us to stay in touch with family and friends, collaborate with colleagues worldwide, and shop for everything from books to houses. They help us manage our finances and make businesses and government more efficient. But our reliance on these networks also makes us vulnerable. Criminals can use the Internet to commit fraud and theft on a grand scale, and to prey upon our children. Spies and terrorists can exploit our networks to steal our secrets, attack our critical infrastructure, and threaten our national security. And because the web offers near-total anonymity, it is difficult to discern the identity, the motives, and the location of an intruder. Yet for too many individuals and businesses, cyber crime remains a nebulous concept. So today, I want to talk about the evolving nature of cyber threats, what the FBI [Federal Bureau of investigation] is doing to combat them, and how we can work together to keep them at bay."
