Cyber Security Summit Outlines Evolving Threats, Solutions

GTC's Wednesday afternoon Cyber Security Summit featured a keynote by Richard W. Downing, senior counsel of the DOJ's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, followed by a panel of security heavyweights from industry, the FBI and the Georgia Technology Authority.

Downing, who developed parts of the Patriot Act, trains investigators and prosecutors on emerging technologies and works on undercover investigations and prosecutions. Downing said his section has about 40 attorneys with a wide range of responsibilities, involving prosecutions of hacking and intellectual property (IP) violations.
