Cyber crime is a growing concern for law enforcement, corporations, and individuals costing billions per year. Each data breach costs American businesses an average of $6.6 million, and every hour, the FBI processes 35 cases through the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

The panel will address the policy and law enforcement challenges from a broad perspective, as well as the unique issues facing social media sites and users.
