FBI Turns to ‘Joint, Sequenced Operations’ to Address Cyberthreats

The FBI is using a collaborative approach to protect the nation from cyberattacks.

Speaking at an event attended by cybersecurity professionals on Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that through “joint, sequenced operations” with domestic and international partners, the FBI can develop operations that could significantly impact cybercriminal organizations.

The domestic intelligence service chief also discussed the growing cyber operations of hostile nations, including China, Iran and Russia, and successes achieved against cyberthreats, FBI .gov reported.

Wray said the agency’s operations aim to paralyze hacking operations, focused on attacking ransomware administrators, cybercriminal groups and cryptocurrency wallets used by hackers in an effort.

CISA is not the only federal agency leading initiatives to protect national security. In August 2023, the National Institute of Standards and Technology sought comments on a draft of the Cybersecurity Framework 2.0, a document to help better understand and address cyber risks.

At the White House’s Office of the National Cyber Director, work on reducing cyberattacks is focused on improving software liability by developing a framework that ensures every release comes with top-notch security features.
