Are you a skilled hacker looking for work more meaningful then taking down the Playstation Network? Do you have the skill to hack into banks but a moral compass that prevents you from doing so? Well, the FBI wants your help.
"Cyber, it permeates every aspect of what we do, whether it's counter terrorism, criminal investigations or traditional cyber attacks as we have seen in the recent past. That's why these types of people are so important to get into the pipeline and come into our organization," said Robert Anderson Jr., executive assistant director of the Bureau's Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch.
The bureau is looking for people with a background in security, malware analysis, digital forensics and something it calls "ethical hacking" to help investigate cyber crimes.
