Presentation: A Brief History of US Secret Service Cyber Investigations and Current Trends

Abstract: Hearing US Secret Service usually conjures up images of agents with dark suits, dark sunglasses, an earpiece, and talking into their palm while standing next to the President of the United States. The US Secret Service is more than that. The agency has a dual mission- Protection and Investigations. The US Secret Service investigates crimes against the US financial system which are increasingly conducted through cyberspace. In this presentation, SSA Chapman will explain a brief history of the US Secret Service, what the US Secret Service does regarding cyber investigations, and the current trends being reported.
