During a virtual meeting with the Economic Club of New York, Director Christopher Wray stressed how public-private #partnerships help the #FBI combat criminal and national security cyber threats like ransomware and intellectual property theft. go.usa.gov/xexyy Image
Wray: Today’s #cyber threats are more pervasive ... than ever before. ... We’re investigating over a hundred #ransomware strains today, and their impact has been growing. ... But if there’s one thing the FBI understands, it’s taking down criminal enterprises.
Wray: Our strategy centers on prevention and disruption—hitting hackers before they attack or before their intrusions can cause major harm. … Actors, infrastructure, and money are all important individually, but we achieve the biggest impact when we disrupt all three together.
Wray: As grave as the ransomware danger is, ... it’s not the only serious cyber problem out there. ... We are constantly ... notifying companies of breaches we’ve discovered by adversaries looking for valuable information and intellectual property to steal.
Wray: Unlike ransomware attacks, a lot of these intrusions often go undetected for weeks or months. We put a premium on getting to victims quickly. That’s a big part of why we put so much effort into building relationships with companies nationwide.
Wray: We need ... your insight, knowledge, and experience. ... But information-sharing works best when it’s a two-way street. So we’re just as eager to share ... what we’re seeing—indicators of compromise, tactics being used by #cybercriminals, and strategic threat information.
Wray: We’re up against some daunting threats posed by nation-states, cybercriminals, and toxic combinations of the two, and we can only prevail with the help of our #partners throughout the private sector.

Wray: Two decades after one of the darkest days in this nation’s history, the memory is as strong as ever. We remember #September11 as if it were yesterday. And we remember every life lost. Special Agents Lenny Hatton and John O’Neill were two of those we lost that day.
Wray: And in the last few years, painful remnants of that day continue, as we’ve also sadly lost other members of our FBI family to 9/11-related illnesses. ... Each life lost is a stark reminder that the long-term effects of the recovery work after September 11 are still present.
