FBI director warns of Chinese hacking, espionage threats against US companies

FBI Director Christopher Wray slammed the Chinese government Tuesday for its use of espionage and cyberattacks against the US, saying that Chinese espionage cases had increased by 1,300% over the past decade.’The stakes could not be higher, and the potential economic harm to American businesses and the economy as a whole almost defies calculation.’ Wray said at the Hudson Institute.

Resistance to Chinese expansionism must go beyond showing off our military capabilities. China uses sophisticated hacking and economic power to bulldoze other nations, and we must greater attention in these sectors. Pulling out of multilateral organizations might also hamper our interests in the long term.
