By M.L. Johnson Associated Press MILWAUKEE - Protecting computer networks and the information stored on them is likely to emerge as the nation's top security priority in coming years, the agent leading FBI efforts to fight cybercrime said Wednesday in an address to law enforcement, military and business leaders. Threats include organized crime, terrorists and activist groups like Anonymous, a loose coalition of hackers that has defaced websites and disseminated private information in an effort to create social change, said Ronald Yearwood, who oversees the FBI's cyber division.
