FBI cybersecurity shift draws skepticism from experts
The FBI has changed its cybersecurity strategy to place greater emphasis on identifying the criminals behind attacks, a shift that some experts say won't make a dent in hacking operations.
Hopes for federal cybersecurity standard fading In a recent blog post, the bureau said it would dedicate more resources to "who is conducting the attack or the exploitation and what is their motive."
"In order to get to that, we've got to do all the necessary analysis to determine who is at the other end of the keyboard perpetrating these actions," Special Agent Richard McFeely said in describing the bureau's Next Generation Cyber Initiative. The bureau was unavailable for comment Tuesday. The changes come as the threat from organized criminals and state-sponsored hackers in foreign countries rises. Targets include corporate networks, government agencies and critical infrastructure.
