Electronic Crimes Task Force (ECTF): In 1995, the Secret Service created the New York Electronic Crimes Task Force. As a result of its success, Congress mandated the establishment of a national network to prevent, detect and investigate electronic crimes, including potential terrorist attacks against critical infrastructure and financial payment systems. Today, the Secret Service’s 39 ECTFs leverage the combined resources of academia, the private sector and local, state and federal law enforcement.
Financial Crimes Task Force (FCTF): Financial Crimes Task Forces combine the resources of the private sector and other law enforcement agencies in an organized effort to combat threats to U.S. financial payment systems and critical infrastructures. Today, the Secret Service has 46 FCTFs located across the country.
