"Your government failed you," testified Richard Clarke, a former cybersecurity and cyberterrorism advisor for the White House. He said that to Congress about 9/11, but now he's warning the people that we are defenseless when it comes to cybersecurity; our government has failed us again. Clarke stated, "Every major company in the United States has already been penetrated by China."
To begin with, the "United States government did the Stuxnet attack," Clarke claimed during an interview with Smithsonian. After dropping that bombshell, he then moved on to cyber espionage, stolen intellectual property and imported tech tainted with backdoor attack tools. He warned not to get him started on "our supply chain of chips, routers and hardware we import from Chinese and other foreign suppliers and what may be implanted in them -- 'logic bombs,' trapdoors and 'Trojan horses,' all ready to be activated on command so we won't know what hit us. Or what's already hitting us."
Shawn Henry, the FBI's 'top cyber cop,' told the Wall Street Journal the U.S. is "not winning" the war against computer criminals. Uncle Sam needs hackers because we are, in fact, outgunned. After 24 years with the FBI, Henry is leaving the government to take a different cybersecurity job. But before the FBI's executive assistant director leaves, he admitted, "I don't see how we ever come out of this without changes in technology or changes in behavior, because with the status quo, it's an unsustainable model. Unsustainable in that you never get ahead, never become secure, never have a reasonable expectation of privacy or security.''
