As such, the U.S. Attorney's Office requires sophisticated and specialized data analytic tools and support to load, organize, assimilate, and summarize large amounts of data, both structured and unstructured, and information related to major criminal investigations of corrupt public figures, cybercriminals, violent gangs, white-collar fraudsters, opioid traffickers, other targets actively pursued by our Civil Frauds unit who are engaged in systematic frauds perpetrated upon government agencies.
