Scott Charney, head of the computer crime and intellectual property section in the Justice Department's criminal division since 1991, joins PriceWaterhouseCoopers today.

Mr. Charney is bringing Greg Schaffer, a Justice Department prosecutor, with him. Despite the move, their work will not be that different, Mr. Charney said. "What I'll be trying to do for the private sector is protect companies from bad guys and find bad guys when they get through," he said.
