*** FBI Director Christopher Wray said companies should focus on their own insider threats rather than look to pursue suspected hackers outside their own networks.
At an April 26 event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations, Wray said the practice of "hacking back…creates all kinds of potentially unintended consequences, and so not something we would recommend, any more than we would recommend people taking justice into their own hands privately in another arena." He added that "even among sophisticated audiences... people tend to think of cybersecurity as their perimeter, whereas in fact in many ways the most important part of cyber security in today's world is inside. It's your own insiders."
