The Justice Department inspector general recently found the slow pace of government may have cost lives. A new report looks at how the FBI and Justice Department tried to clean up a mess that began 20 years ago. Examiners at the FBI crime lab did shoddy work for criminal prosecutions. It took the FBI nearly five years to identify all the defendants who might have been impacted. Some already had been executed. An agency task force took nine years to finish reviewing the problems. Deputy Inspector General Cynthia Schedar joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to recap what happened.

The Justice Department has rewritten the playbook on catching cyber criminals. It recently led an international effort to disrupt a global cybertheft ring. A Russian-led gang allegedly stole millions of dollars by infecting computers with malware known as Gameover Zeus. Robert Anderson is the executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber Response and Services Branch at the FBI. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss how the sting operation worked.
Cloud technologies are creating compliance problems for the FBI at the state level. Because of the security and privacy regulations for contractors working with the agency, regular state police officers have to jump through legal hoops to access FBI databases remotely to run checks on suspicious people from a laptop or their patrol car. The FBI requires a cloud provider to run criminal background checks on every one of its own employees in each location it wants a cloud service. Some states are already working with cloud providers to strike special compliance deals with the FBI so officers and contractors can earn special certification to interact with FBI databases through the cloud. Nextgov reports state agencies are now running special audits to make sure cloud contractors follow the FBI's regulations.
