To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Records pertaining to the "Cyber Ninjas" program, including communication or coordination with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3 - Est. 2000), the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force (NCIJTF - Est. 2008), the Domestic Security Alliance Council (DSAC - Est. 2005), the Cyber Division at FBI Headquarters, the "Cyber Squads" at FBI headquarters and in each of the 56 Bureau Field Offices, the 93 or more Computer Crimes Task Forces, CyWatch (the Buruea's 24/7 cyber operations center), the iGuardian portal (the Bureau's Industry-Focused Cyber Intrusion Reporting Platform), or InfraGard; including Communications Sector, Defense Industrial Base Sector, or Information Technology Sector Critical Infrastructures within InfraGard as may pertain to "Cyber Ninjas" collaboration.
Please search records in any form, including multi-media content, paper notes, audio transcripts of verbal communications, emails, field notes, Agent's notes, and investigative materials.
Please *DO NOT* expend any time conducting a CRS search using general indices, nor an ACS search via UNI for the requested terms. Instead, three other searches are explicitly requested:
1. Please conduct a DIVS search through ACS records for "Cyber Ninjas", in any category of entity relation to the Bureau.
2. Please conduct a Sentinel search for "Cyber Ninjas" using both structured search, as an organization or subject, or within the content of a communication account.
3. Please also conduct a full-text Sentinel search for "Cyber Ninjas", which will not produce collisions with unrelated records as this term is sufficiently unique to the FBI partnership context.
Please provide a count of materials withheld for any reason. Thank you!
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM, DVD-R, or BD-R if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
