BREAKING: #China poses huge threat to #NationalSecurity, from #espionage, #IPtheft, #cyberattacks, says top US Intelligence officials during
Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on worldwide threats.
1/ "China’s actions reflect a long-term strategy to achieve global superiority," says Director Coates of @ODNIgov. "Beijng will seek to tout a distinctly Chinese fusion…
2/ …of strongman autocracy and a form of Western style capitalism as a development model and implicit alternative to democratic values and institutions."
Director Coates continues: "Chinese pursuit of intellectual property, sensitive research and development plans, and the US person data remains a significant threat to the United States government and the private sector."
"Frankly while we were sleeping in the last decade and a half, China had a remarkable rise in capabilities that are stunning. A lot of that was achieved… by stealing information from our companies, by inserting Chinese… in our labs, bringing back… stolen properties."
"Rule of law, and international norms, and fairness in trade and engagements is not the Chinese model…[Our allies are] now finding their product has been duplicated by the Chinese and sold at half the price because they didn’t have to spend as much money on research development"
HAPPENING NOW: Director Coates says @ODNIgov has been working with the business community, meeting with CEOs to alert them of risks of dealing with #China.
1/ @FBI Director Christopher Wray: "One of the things that the American people… are now waking up to understand is that… the lines between the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party, are blurred, if not totally erased. The lines between the Chinese government…
2/ …and Chinese state-owned enterprises, the same. The line between the Chinese government and ostensibly private companies [the same]."
"[The] Chinese counter-intelligence threat is more deep, more diverse, more vexing, more challenging, more comprehensive and more concerning than any counter-intelligence threat I can think of," says @FBI Director Christopher Wray
