Utah Department of Public Safety

Investigations - Cyber Crimes

Our Mission

The mission of the State Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crimes Unit (CCU) is to investigate the criminal use of computers and related technologies. These crimes include but are not limited to computer and network intrusions, unauthorized access, data theft and Internet fraud.

A Message from Commissioner Keith Squires

"The Utah Department of Public Safety recently received funding from the State Legislature to organize a cyber crimes unit to combat computer-related crime including network intrusions, denial of service attacks, website defacement, internet theft or fraud, and other computer-related crime. Our cyber unit is working in conjunction with the FBI Cyber Task Force and the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3.gov) in this endeavor.

Recently, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey indicated that cyber-attacks are increasingly becoming the primary threat to the United States. While the FBI is working to avert transnational threats to our Homeland, individuals and businesses within our community are suffering significant asset losses to criminals and criminal organizations through fraud and disruption of computer networks.  

As Commissioner of  the Utah Department of Public Safety, I am committed to working with the FBI and local law enforcement in combating cyber and computer-related crime."
