Mandia: US-China No-Hack Pact Could Be Game Changer
Cyberspace has become a structural facility and a modus operandi for China.

Considering the continuous investment made by China into its cyberspace critical infrastructures, the relevant PLA Units, the mighty Cyberspace Administration of China and the volume of cyberattacks reportedly from Peking as a pipeline of inputs for its civil and military industry, I can't see how China could stop conducting its policy of cyberattacks against the cornucopia of highly sensitive sectorial innovations and global market shares represented by America (and its Western partners). 

As a sort of provisional memorandum of agreement, Chinese cyberspying networks might go dormant during a while and would then resurface within a few months because the economic gain is too high as a matter of survival for the hyperpower that China has now become in its partner-competitor relationship with USA, the other hyperpower.

The ThreatConnect-DGI report about the trade in the South China Sea and the deep interest of the Naikon Group in close connection with the region via its intrusion intothe Netherlands-based Permanent Court of Arbitration tribunal provides the reader with some elements of a lucid analysis with regard to current diplomatic, military and economic topics.

Best regards,

Re: US-CHINA No hack pact
Agreed, @TejGhandi1986. It's easy to dismiss it as a political move by both sides or at least by China. But the fact that they are having this conversation at this time has very real implications. Not sure how it will all play out, but if the US starts fining Chinese companies, something's gonna give.

US-CHINA No hack pact
It is a decision in the correct direction but it will remain to be seen how well it is implemented.Considering Chinese hacking activities of Google in the past and cyber espionage events,even copying of designs of US military aircrafts.

This pact can be vital and  be a step in correct direction.

 

Thanks
