Director Addresses Cyber Conference

Wray said there are numerous different types of cyber threats facing the country—nation-state intrusions, hacktivists, insider threats, and, more recently, the so-called “blended threat” of nation-states using criminal hackers to work for them.

But as hackers and criminals evolve, the FBI is changing, too, Wray said.

The Bureau is developing the cyber skills of its workforce and organizing its personnel to work the threat most effectively. For example, the FBI’s Cyber Action Teams can deploy at a moment’s notice, much the way counterterrorism teams respond to an attack or threat. Additionally, Cyber Task Forces in every FBI field office respond to breaches, conduct investigations, and collect actionable intelligence. The FBI is also strategically embedding cyber agents with international partners to build relationships and coordinate investigations.

Wray cited recent cyber successes, including the international effort to take down Darknet marketplaces AlphaBay and Hansa Market, as well as identifying and bringing indictments against four hackers

Canadian police frustration over cyber crime shows at conference

OTTAWA – Police frustration of dealing with the ever-increasing amount cyber crime businesses and citizens face compared with limited law enforcement resources burst out for a few minutes at a conference here Monday when a senior RCMP officer said more has to be done on prevention.

“We’re not going to be able to put these things (cyber crime) through the courts and expect to solve it,” Scott Doran, director general for federal policing for criminal operations including online crime, told an international cyber crime police summit here.

“So, how much effort are we as putting into prevention as a law enforcement community? … I don’t think we’re doing enough.”

The Mounties’ cyber strategy includes reducing the impact and victimization of cyber crime by identifying and prioritizing threats. But, Doran said, “we’re probably not doing a great job … The reality is we don’t have the resources. We ‘re so busy responding that to get out

Indeed, it has crossed the rubicon between the worlds
