Featured Resource - The Internet Crime Complaint Center or IC3 for Short

October is National Cybersecurity Month, so I wanted to feature a really great resource, the Internet Crime Complaint Center, or the IC3 for short.The IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

The IC3 addresses and monitors crime committed on the Internet. The IC3 is a helpful resource for both consumers and law enforcement agencies.

Internet users who feel they are a victim of a cyber crime are encouraged to report their experience to the IC3 at

What The IC3 Does
  • Provides a central point for the Internet crime victims to report and to alert an appropriate agency
  • Collects, reviews, and refers Internet crime complaint to the appropriate law enforcement agencies
