"And we’re doubling down on the successful strategies we have deployed to attack cyber and crypto crime, to harness all tools across government to pursue prevention, deterrence and accountability."
"Now, since I returned to the department, I’ve also looked for ways to expand the resources available to the department’s prosecutors to address the evolution of corporate crime."
"And last year, we stood up the National Cryptocurrency Enforcement Team (NCET) and the FBI’s Virtual Asset Unit (VAU)."
"Now, these investments have already been paying off — whether you look at the over $5 billion in cryptocurrency recovered last year or the prosecutions we have brought against dozens of crypto criminals."
