#ICYMI: During a congressional hearing this week, #FBI Director Christopher Wray discussed how end-to-end encryption threatens the FBI’s mission to protect the American people from federal crimes, including crimes against children, cyberattacks, and terrorism.
Wray: We are concerned that ... no matter how bulletproof or ironclad the legal authority, no matter how compelling the facts and circumstances, no matter how horrific the crime ... we will not be able to get access to the content that we need to keep people safe.
Wray: What we have been suggesting ... is for the companies themselves to build in a way to have legal access when confronted with a proper legal authority so that they can get access to information and provide it in response to a warrant or a court order.
Wray: We would welcome the opportunity to work with the companies ... to get to a situation where we can balance strong #cybersecurity ... with strong flesh and blood security, especially for America's children.
Director Wray also voiced his support for law enforcement personnel who risk their lives every day to protect their communities.
Wray: I want to enthusiastically support the idea of looking at everything we can do to protect the men and women in law enforcement. The threats—the violence against law enforcement in this country—is one of the most tragic and sometimes least talked about challenges we face.
Wray: Think about what it takes for someone to be willing to sacrifice his or her life for a total stranger ... every single day. ... They never know when that day might be the day that they don't come home to their families.

Director Christopher Wray’s Statement on Violent Activity at the U.S. Capitol Building ow.ly/dFsX50D2CR4
Director Wray: The violence and destruction of property at the U.S. Capitol building yesterday showed a blatant and appalling disregard for our institutions of government and the orderly administration of the democratic process.
Director Wray: As we’ve said consistently, we do not tolerate violent agitators and extremists who use the guise of First Amendment-protected activity to incite violence and wreak havoc. Such behavior betrays the values of our democracy.

Wray: At the #FBI, we’ve been fighting the cyber threat for many years now. ... We’ve become known for our efforts to call out destabilizing and damaging #cyber activity by nation-state actors. But we are also particularly focused on the threat posed by cybercriminals. @wef
Wray: Just like we’ve done throughout our 112-year history of fighting crime and terrorism, our goal is to impose risk and consequences on bad actors in cyberspace—whoever and wherever they are. @wef

#FBI Deputy Assistant Director Tonya Ugoretz will provide remarks regarding the FBI’s cyber strategy at #CyberTalks today at 10:50 a.m. #NCSAM2020 @CyberScoopNews ow.ly/oUhD50BXwuT CyberTalks: A Daily Digital Experience
Ugoretz: The cyber threats we're most concerned about involve foreign actors using global infrastructure to compromise U.S. networks. It’s not the type of threat activity that any single U.S. agency or private entity [can] anticipate, detect, and respond to completely on our own.
Ugoretz: Our strategy is to impose risk and consequences on our cyber adversaries—those who for too long have believed they can compromise U.S. networks, steal U.S. financial and intellectual property, and hold our critical infrastructure at risk—all without incurring any risk.
