The FBI announced Monday that, as part of its latest reorganization, the agency is 
forming a Cybercrime Division to handle intellectual-property, high-tech and computer 

The new organization shifts 11 existing divisions into four new units, said 
spokeswoman Deborah Weierman.

The Cybercrime Division will be paired with the Criminal Investigation Division under 
Ruben Garcia Jr., the new executive assistant director for Criminal Investigations. 
The three other divisions are Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence, Law Enforcement 
Services, and Administration.

Ruben previously was the assistant director of the Criminal Investigative Division.

The reorganization is only the first of two phases, the FBI said in a statement. The 
second phase will aim to eliminate duplication of efforts.

The FBI did not announce where the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC), 
the interagency group that tracks cybercrimes, would fit in the new picture. Although 
certain aspects of the organization could be part of the Criminal Investigation 
Division, others belong in the Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence Division
