Cyber Cold War Right on Our Door Step


Nation-State sponsored cybercrime is on the upswing. China, as an example, has an entire cyber army that it dispatches to US university programs and US businesses as well as to third party providers world-wide who offer services to US businesses. They graduate from our universities and get jobs in US businesses from which they steal intellectual property returning it to China. It is having and will continue to have detrimental economic effects on our society and our business in the future. Maintaining sound security practices, including implementing Access control policies to anyone who is not a US citizen, are keys to preventing these incidents and their damage.
