Source: U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission
From the press release:
Today the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission released a report entitled: "Occupying the Information High Ground: Chinese Capabilities for Computer Network Operations and Cyber Espionage." The report details how China is advancing its capabilities in computer network attack, defense, and exploitation and examines issues related to cybersecurity, China, and potential risks to U.S. national security and economic interests. ...
"The report highlights China's extensive development of cyber tools to advance the leadership's objectives" said Commissioner Michael Wessel. "It's getting harder and harder for China's leaders to claim ignorance and innocence as to the massive electronic reconnaissance and cyber intrusions activities directed by Chinese interests at the U.S. government and our private sector. The report identifies specific doctrinal intent as well as financial support for government-sponsored cyber espionage capabilities. There's clear and present danger that is increasing every day."
This report was prepared for the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission by Northrop Grumman Corp.
