Distributed denial of service attacks remain a significant security threat to organizations in all sectors - particularly financial services. And the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Cyber Division is aggressively working with private sector security leaders to investigate these crimes and mitigate the effects.

But there remain challenges to creating successful public/private partnerships and enabling the right level of information exchange about cyber crimes.

In a video interview recorded at RSA 2014, Malcolm Palmore of the FBI's San Francisco office discusses:

  • The FBI's role in DDoS investigations;
  • Results of public/private partnerships;
  • Lessons learned that are applied to other cybercrime investigations.

Palmore serves as the assistant special agent in charge of the San Francisco Division's Cyber Branch. Previously, he served as a supervisory special agent in the Sacramento Division. Palmore entered on duty with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1997. Upon completing new agents training, he was assigned to the Los Angeles Division. Palmore subsequently served in Sacramento Division and in Inspection Division at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Palmore earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Naval Academy and a Masters of Business Administration from Pepperdine University. Prior to joining the FBI, he served as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.
