纽特·金里奇: 中国, Russia cyberattacks – Biden's weak response endangers US. 这是如何做

In response to this attack, the Biden administration opted for thename and shameapproach by calling out 中国 and publicizing an advisory list of more than 50 different tactics used by China’s hackers to target the United States. You can imagine how shaken Xi Jinping and the dictatorship were by beingnamed and shamed.They will accept that swap of action for words every day.

During Monday’s press conference, President Biden revealed how weakly he is responding to the real threat of cyberwarfare – and how he fundamentally misunderstands what we are up against.

DAVID BOSSIE: 拜登, DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY – SIX MONTHS IN, AMERICANS REJECTING THIS RADICAL AGENDA

Speaking at the press conference, 拜登说, “中国政府, not unlike the Russian government, is not doing this themselves, but are protecting those who are doing it and maybe even accommodating them being able to do it.

第一, let’s be clear: citing senior officials, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that “美国. government has high confidence that hackers tied to the Ministry of State Security, or MSS, carried out the unusually indiscriminate hack of Microsoft Exchange Server software that emerged in March.

China’s Ministry of State Security is the equivalent of a combined CIA and FBI that is under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (whose power supersedes the government). 有 没有 systematic activity happening in China that is against the wishes of Xi and the Chinese Communist Party. The Western idea of separation between public and private spheres simply does not exist.

第二, Biden’s overt response to this attack is not proportionate to the severity of the breach. After the SolarWinds attack gave Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service hackers access to as many as 18,000 Solarwind customers, including nearly a dozen U.S. government agencies, Biden responded with sanctions and the expulsion of Russian diplomats.

But this more recent Microsoft hack was significantly more serious than the Solarwinds infiltration. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Dmitri Alperovitch, chairman of Silverado Policy Accelerator, 说过, “The Microsoft Exchange hacks by MSS contractors is the most reckless cyber operation we have yet seen from the Chinese actors – much more dangerous than the Russian SolarWindshacks.

当然, there could be covert operations underway that may never be made public, but the public response has ultimately created a double standard. Couple this double standard with Biden’s list of 16 sectors that are off limits to hacking (creating the assumption that everything else is fair game) and the result is a weak, confusing, public-facing cyber security policy.

According to a February Gallup poll 82% of Americans see cyberterrorism as a critical threat. Cyberterrorism is seen as a critical threat by more Americans than any other issue surveyed, including the development of nuclear weapons in North Korea and Iran.

As I write in my upcoming book, “Beyond Biden (out in November), Americans’ concerns are well warranted considering the scope, scale and severity of cyberattacks against the United States in recent months – and the direct impact these attacks have had on Americans.

我们. must recognize that China’s and Russia’s approaches to warfare are fundamentally different than our own.
