Director Wray delivered opening remarks on default encryption and its impact on child exploitation cases at @TheJusticeDept’s Lawful Access Summit today. He stressed the need for lawful access solutions that help the #FBI save victims, protect families, and stop child predators.
Director Wray: Technology has made life much easier for the good guys, but it’s also made life much easier for the bad guys, including international and domestic terrorists, hackers, opioid traffickers, and child predators.
Director Wray: Child predators routinely rely on encrypted phones and laptops to store explicit photographs and exchange illegal media, contact victims, and coordinate with co-conspirators over encrypted messaging platforms.
Director Wray: These devices and platforms have become spaces where vital rules—against soliciting child abuse, against trading in and feeding that abuse, against threatening abuse victims struggling to make a normal life—cannot be effectively applied.
Director Wray: Lawful access isn’t just a future problem; it’s here now. Together, we in government, law enforcement, the victim's advocacy community, and the tech industry have the power, the ability, and the skills to find a mutually acceptable solution.
Director Wray: We all want safe, secure, private data, but we also want safe and secure communities. We can have both.
