#FBI Director Christopher Wray is with @FBISaltLakeCity and @DUTnews today to speak at the 11th Annual Utah National Security and Anti-Terrorism Conference. Follow along with @FBI starting at 10:30 AM ET/8:30 AM MT for excerpts from his remarks.
#FBI Director Wray speaking about the FBI’s unwavering commitment to protecting our country from terrorism: “We wake up every morning asking ourselves, 'what do we need to do to keep people safe today, and tomorrow, and the day after that?'"
Director Wray spoke about how the #FBI has changed since September 11, 2001: It’s remarkable to see firsthand the capabilities we’ve built with our #partners, both here and around the world. Today, we’re all stronger, smarter, and better able to confront the threats we face.
#FBI Director Wray: #NationalSecurity remains our top priority, and #counterterrorism, of course, is still a paramount concern. But the primary terrorist threat to the homeland today, without question, is homegrown violent extremists.
#FBI Director Wray: The threat posed by homegrown violent extremists is a new constant, and it has created a new set of challenges: a much greater number of potential threats, each with far fewer dots to connect, and much less time in which to prevent or disrupt an attack.
#FBI Director Wray on his vision for confronting the threat of terrorism: "I believe three things are crucial: #partnerships, #intelligence, and #innovation."
#FBI Director Wray: “Our success is going to depend on strong #partnerships—with our partners in the community; with our state and local law enforcement partners; and with our intelligence #community partners, both here at home and around the world.” (1/2)
#FBI Dir. Wray: We've got to keep building good relationships with the communities we serve. We’ve got to earn their trust & encourage them to contact law enforcement when they see/hear something that doesn’t seem right. The threats we face are bigger than any one of us. (2/2)
#FBI Director Wray about the importance of leveraging #intelligence to combat #terrorism: We know that if we’re to be truly effective with intelligence, we’ve got to get even better at collecting, analyzing, and sharing intelligence across everything we do.
One of my priorities is making the #FBI a more agile & resilient org that’s nimble & fosters creativity & ingenuity; that creates more & tries more. One that embraces the risk of failure, when it’s part of a process to improve, inside the rules but outside the box. – Dir. Wray
#FBI Director Wray: “When I say innovation, I’m not just talking about #technology—it can be anything that helps us bridge a gap in an operational need or that makes us more effective in carrying out the mission.”
“If the evolution of the terrorist threat has taught the FBI anything, it’s that we need to adapt to whatever challenges are coming around the bend—quickly and fluidly.” Director Wray on the importance of the #FBI evolving alongside a changing landscape.
In closing, Dir. Wray says that despite the evolution of the threat, there’s one thing that hasn't changed: the FBI's resolve to stopping those who seek to harm this country. We know we couldn't do this without our many partners & we are grateful for their continued commitment.
