FBI Wants More Cyber Threat Aid From Private Sector

Though many companies may be reluctant to report security breaches, FBI Director Robert Muller encouraged corporations and other organizations to report cyber crimes to the FBI. In turn, the FBI pledges to launch an investigation that will include the requisite steps for minimizing disruption to businesses while safeguarding enterprise privacy.

According to Muller, attribution is absolutely critical to deter future attacks. "We cannot just minimize vulnerabilities and deal with the consequences," Muller explained. "Collectively, we can improve cyber security and lower costs -- with systems designed to catch threat actors rather than to [merely] withstand them."

Corporations hit by security breaches gain access to vast resources when they work closely with the FBI to identify the perpetrators as well as the security holes exploited by hackers. For example, the bureau has 63 offices that cover the globe as well as agents embedded in the police departments of specific countries that are hacking hot spots, such as Romania, Estonia, Ukraine and the Netherlands.

Within the borders of the United States, the FBI is working closely with other law enforcement and governmental agencies at the local, state and national levels, including the Department of Homeland Security, the National Security Agency, the CIA and the Secret Service. Additionally, the FBI has formed an information-sharing partnership with the private sector called InfraGard.

"We must use our connectivity to stop those who seek to do us harm," Muller said.

Funny that the feds throw rocks into hornets' nests by threatening those on the fringe of the free flow of information with punitive action, but now turn to those very same people to help them get a handle on the situation. It's hilarious really...
