Washington Briefing: Cybersecurity and Commercial Espionage Issues in 2014

Last year began with a significant focus on international commercial espionage, particularly from entities within China. Since Edward Snowden’s leaks in mid-2013, however, the commercial issues seem to have been lost in the noise as the public’s focus shifted to the US government’s surveillance activities.

Please join the US-China Business Council (USCBC) for a briefing with James A. Lewis, director and senior fellow, Strategic Technologies Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Lewis will discuss developments on commercial espionage in the past year and what may be on the horizon.

This meeting will be entirely off the record and is by invitation only for members and selected guests of USCBC. As space will be limited, RSVPs will be taken first-come, first-served, and only one participant per member company will be admitted.
