TOPIC-Chinese Espionage Not Being Taken Seriously
Guest Opportunity: Frank Vernuccio - National Expert on Policy & Government Affairs
A recent Department of Defense report outlines China's accelerated use of illegally acquired dual-use military-related information, as well as data stolen by espionage.
Despite denials by the Chinese government, United States security experts feel the threat presented by the Chinese is significant highlighting the fact that a great number of cyber-hacking originates in China.
Yet amid these reports, the Obama administration has reduced the importance of counter-intelligence against China and has placed the Commerce Department in charge of overseeing control of sensitive information being exported.
Frank Vernuccio, a National Expert on Analysis of Policy & Government Affairs talks about this by discussing:
Why is the Obama administration ignoring the Chinese threat to security?
How can so many cyber attacks originate in Beijing if the government controls the Internet in China?
What should the Administration do to protect our interests against Chinese espionage?
Is the US government providing a false sense of security to the American people?
