How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI Faces Enormous Hurdles in Crackdown Against Proliferation of Hackers

Cyber security experts are facing incredible hurdles as they try to crack down on an increasing number of hackers worldwide.

Business Insider reports that the underground market for cybercrime is thriving and includes a range of people from experts to amateurs. Complicating the effort are the myriad barriers to overcome, including extradition, when conducting global investigations.

Hackers are from all over the world, and many are sophisticated crime rings.

“We need to know that the criminal is in a territory that we can do the arrest or that we know that some of the criminal infrastructure we’re going to disrupt is in a territory that we can exercise jurisdiction,” said Ilias Chantzos, senior director of government affairs EMEA at Symantec. “Some of it will not be there and we need to accept that so often the effectiveness will be as good as it possibly can be.”

Also complicating the effort is getting enough cyber security employees. A recent report found that the FBI was struggling to fill job openings because of relatively low pay and the thorough background checks.
