Senior officials of the United States and China recently met to discuss cybersecurity and other issues ahead of Chinese president’s visit to the US later in September. It is not a secret that cybersecurity remains a hot topic between the two countries, with China being regularly blamed for cyber attacks on US companies and stealing government personnel records.
It became known that the negotiations involved a “frank and open exchange about cyber issues” between the Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, and a senior Communist party secretary for political and legal affairs, Meng Jianzhu. The latter also met with the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, and the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson. According to media reports, Johnson convened a meeting between the Chinese part and the FBI officials, the representatives of the intelligence community and the state, treasury and justice departments.
The negotiations started after Barack Obama claimed that cyberattacks from China were “not acceptable”. He warned China that at the point, the US would consider attacks as a core national security threat and treat it as such.
Recently, there were numerous hacks on American companies and government agencies – unsurprisingly, almost all of them were blamed on China. Moreover, administration officials allowed to understand that Chinese companies and individuals could face sanctions because of this.
Security experts believe that the move seems to be triggered by a recent breach of the US federal government personnel records that exposed data of millions of officials, including some at the highest levels.
