Nicole Friedlander Interviewed by Wall Street Journal Law BlogDecember 9, 2016
On December 9, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog published an interview with Nicole Friedlander titled “Leading Questions: A Chat with Ex-Cybercrime Prosecutor Nicole Friedlander.” Nicole discussed her time at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan as well as how she became a cyber prosecutor. “Cyber is a means to commit other crimes. It is very difficult to identify a cybercriminal looking purely at the technology he's using to commit the crime. But the bad guys typically are committing these crimes to get paid, so you have to find the places where they are getting money and spending money,” Nicole said when asked how her experience in white-collar work had prepared her to prosecute cybercrimes.
