A One of a Kind Case of Cyber Espionage

The United States Government has formally accused the Chinese Military of Cyber Espionage. The accused are suspected of hacking into computers in corporate America in order to steal trade secrets, as well as targeting the US Military’s networks. In an unprecedented move, Attorney General Eric Holder has indicated that he intends to follow through with the prosecution of these state-sponsored cyber-attacks. This move is the latest in a line of actions by the US Government to increase its presence in the world of cyber security. That presence is absolutely necessary, as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel recently pointed out. He explained that “Our nation’s reliance on cyberspace outpaces our cyber security.” This realization is enough to cause concern for anyone. Luckily, there are private sector resources to help protect you and your assets. http://www.todayonline.com/world/asia/china-cited-cybersecurity-case-us-official
