President Obama signaled the national import of cybersecurity with a White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection in February 2015. We watched as U.S. allegations of North Korea’s hacking into Sony Corporation unfolded on the world stage. China's PLA Unit 61398 grabbed headlines with its cyber espionage into U.S. interests. The threat of cyber espionage proves ubiquitous. This panel will focus on the most critical bilateral relationship in the world of cybersecurity today: between U.S. and China. Since the Mandiant report and the Snowden leaks, hostility between the two governments around cybersecurity has reached an all-time high. This program brings together leading experts from the government, private sector and academia to critically examine cyber espionage waged by both countries; the threats implied; and preventive measures envisioned by the best minds in the industry.

This is the second in a two-part ASNC program series titled Digital Dilemma on cybersecurity and U.S.-Asia relations.
