    The FBI suffers from a high turnover of experts in cybercrime but continues to get quality people, FBI Director Louis Freeh said Wednesday. "There's a bull market" for skilled FBI cyber-crime workers, Freeh told a World Economic Forum event held at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In order to keep workers in the agency, he said, "we basically rely on people's patriotism."

    That can be difficult when agency employees earning $50,000 to $55,000 interact every day with former FBI workers now making six figures in the private sector, he said. Fortunately for the agency, the number of qualified applicants continues to far outnumber the job vacancies.
