CCIU logoCCIU’s Mission

Investigations – The CCIU’s primary mission is to conduct worldwide criminal investigations of intrusions, insider threats, and related malicious activities involving U.S. Army computers, networks, personnel, and data. Because investigations of this nature require an exceptional level of cyber expertise, CCIU personnel receive advanced training from the Defense Cyber Investigations Training Academy, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and other accredited training providers.

Technical Assistance – CCIU special agents, attorneys, forensic examiners, analysts, and cybersecurity technicians use their specialized knowledge of information technology to provide guidance to other CID field offices that conduct investigations involving computers.

Forensic Assistance – Certain CCIU special agents and technical staff receive advanced training in processing and analyzing digital evidence. On a case-by-case basis, these experts assist other CID elements, the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory, and partner law enforcement agencies.

Vulnerability Assessments – To assist the U.S. Army in maintaining the integrity and security of its networks, the CCIU has developed a Cybercrime Prevention Program. This program identifies network vulnerabilities considered to be crime-conducive conditions, and the cognizant Army commander must address the vulnerabilities identified by the program. By taking a proactive approach, the CCIU helps prevent future network intrusions and cybersecurity compromises.

Program Management – As CID’s Center of Excellence for computer crime investigations, the CCIU provides centralized program management services and oversees training, professional development, certifications, promulgation of best practices, and customer feedback processes across CID’s cyber workforce.

The CCIU's director is Supervisory Special Agent Daniel T. Andrews.
