Digital Crimes Unit

Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) is an international team of technical, legal and business experts that has been fighting cybercrime to protect victims since 2008. We use our expertise and unique view into online criminal networks to uncover evidence so that we can make criminal referrals to appropriate law enforcement throughout the world. In addition to the threat of arrest and prosecution, cybercrime can be deterred by quickly and meaningfully disrupting the operational infrastructure used by cybercriminals, through civil legal actions or technical measures.
