Trump Administration Launches Initiative vs Foreign Hackers

Under the Trump administration, the National Counter-Intelligence and Security Center launched last Monday an initiative that would better protect US firms against data theft from foreign hackers.

William Evanina, a veteran FBI agent who oversees the center, said they are worried about cyber attacks launched by China, Russia, North Korea and Iran on US government agencies and the private sector.

He added that while they are not warning against investments into China, top corporate executives and directors should still be aware of the intent of US adversaries and what they are trying to do economically to gain the upper hand.
