FBI Director Christopher Wray: Companies Should Consider Partnering with Federal Gov’t to Combat Cybersecurity Threats

FBI Director Christopher Wray has recommended that corporations partner with the federal government to protect their data and computer systems from cyberattacks, NextGov reported Monday.

During an address at a National Association of Corporate Directors event, Wray said if companies discover a breach in their cyber platforms or evidence of online file tampering, they should inform federal agencies.

Wray added that corporate boards should work to see that information security is taken seriously and limit the amount of people who can access their firms' sensitive data.

He also advised that American companies should avoid mergers, joint ventures and other transactions with Chinese firms to hinder the latter from obtaining intellectual property and trade secrets.
