If you ask the U.S. intelligence community what remains the top threat to the nation in 2019, they’ll tell you that it’s cyber-attacks from foreign countries; particularly China and Russia.
"China presents a persistent cyber espionage threat and a growing attack threat to our core military and critical infrastructure systems," Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said in his Jan. 29 prepared statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee. "China remains the most active strategic competitor responsible for cyber espionage against the U.S. government, corporations, and allies. It is improving its cyber-attack capabilities and altering information online, shaping Chinese views and potentially the views of U.S. citizens."
