James Mattis on Technology

 

 


Cyber domain presents new challenge to maintain US advantage

As China flexes its muscles and expand s its military and economic reach , its activities in cyberspace are creating real tension. In an increasingly inter-connected world, the cyber domain presents new and growing challenges. Using evolving cyber tools, state and non-state actors continue to probe U.S. systems , exploit vulnerabilities, and challenge our interests.

Technological advancement across the globe, even by non-hostile countries, is challenging the U.S. advantage, as commercial technologies spread into the hands of those who wish us harm. The world is gaining on the U.S. We have long seen this dynamic with the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons and ballistic missile technology , but increasingly in the cyber domain, countries thought to be unsophisticated, such as North Korea, have overcome what appear to be low technological barriers of entry to engage in offensive cyber operations. The U.S. must continue to invest wisely to maintain a decisive advantage.
