China Recalculates Its Use of Cyber Espionage 

On September 25, 2015, President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed that neither government would “conduct or knowingly support cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property”(1) for an economic advantage. Some observers hailed the agreement as a game changer for U.S. and Chinese relations, while skeptics saw this as little more than a diplomatic formality unlikely to stymie years of state-sponsored intellectual property theft(2). Since the agreement, there has been much discussion and speculation as to what impact, if any, it would have on Chinese cyber operations.

FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence teams reviewed the activity of 72 groups suspected to operate from China or otherwise support Chinese state interests in our latest intelligence report, Red Line Drawn: China Recalculates Its Use of Cyber Espionage. Going back nearly three and a half years to early 2013, our analysis paints a complex picture, leading us to assess the range of political, economic, and other forces that were contributing to a shift in Chinese cyber operations more than a year prior to the Xi-Obama agreement.

Join us as we explore the implications of our findings and U.S.-China relations in a webinar presented by Adam Segal, the Maurice R. Greenberg senior fellow for China studies, director of the Digital and Cyberspace Policy Program at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and an expert on security issues, technology development, and Chinese domestic and foreign policy. He is author of The Hacked World Order: How Nations Fight, Trade, Maneuver, and Manipulate in the Digital Age, a recently published book that explores how cyberspace has evolved to influence geopolitics. It covers cyber espionage, the influence of social media, Internet governance and many other topics.
