National Security Division

Division Overview

The National Security Division is the first-of-its-kind in the nation for a United States Attorney’s Office and is responsible for combatting national security and cyber security threats facing our region and our nation. Protecting national security is the highest priority of the Department of Justice and the United States Attorney’s Office.

The National Security Division consists of the Terrorism and Export Crimes Section and the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crimes Section. Due to the complexity of the cases handled by these Sections, the close coordination needed with other districts and DOJ by these sections, the increased reliance on classified information in their prosecutions, and the overriding goal of prevention shared by these sections, they joined together to form the National Security Division.
