Special Report - Enter the Cyber Dragon: Understanding Chinese intelligence agencies' cyber capabilities
By Tobias Feakin
The case for opening a cyber dialogue is made in ASPI’s latest report by Tobias Feakin. This paper provides a clearer understanding of the key elements of the Chinese intelligence agencies that exploit the cyberdomain. It also shows that, while cybersecurity is a concern, much media coverage tends to oversimplify the issue and not present the public with the fuller picture.
2013 is the year that cyber issues have taken on a heightened priority and strategic weight. Governments must now work out how to handle cyber matters as an element of their foreign policy to prevent long-term damage to international relationships.
