Speaker: Michael Anaya

Topic: An FBI Case Walkthrough


Cyber crime takes on many forms, and it is the FBI's role in the cyber landscape to address all forms of this persistent threat. The FBI selected Michael F. D. Anaya to serve as a Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) in the Atlanta Field Office on a Cyber Squad. He was chosen, due to his outstanding work as a lead Agent on several complex Cyber cases and his reputation as a strong and dynamic leader. In addition, SSA Anaya has a breadth of knowledge (spanning 12 years) in various other investigations involving program fraud, extortion, terrorism, fugitive apprehension, and counterintelligence. Prior to joining the FBI, SSA Anaya worked as a lead application developer, designing and developing software for major commercial banks. In college, he studied Business Computer Systems and Finance at various universities.
