John Carlin talked about cybersecurity threats in the U.S., and the role of the Justice Department’s National Security Division in combating those threats. He spoke at length about his department’s decision to indict five Chinese military officials for hacking U.S. companies, saying enough evidence existed for a conviction. He warned that not bringing charges was to say that China’s actions were not criminal activity.
