The United States intends to use all the tools available to them to protect against hackers from the PRC

US President Joe Biden has made it clear that there will be consequences, said Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.

Washington intends to use all the tools at its disposal to protect itself from hackers from the PRC. This was stated on Thursday at a briefing for journalists at the White House by US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo.

“President [US Joe] Biden has made it very clear that there will be consequences. And we will use all the tools at our disposal to protect Americans and American businesses,” she said, answering a question about whether the US administration does not think that the introduction of duties and sanctions against China is necessary to prevent such actions in the future.

Raimondo also noted that she did not have any contacts with colleagues from China, during which the topic of hackers would be discussed.

On July 19, the US government accused “attackers associated with the Ministry of State Security of the People’s Republic of China” of a cyber-attack through vulnerability in Microsoft’s Exchange Server software. In addition, Washington, along with its NATO allies and some other foreign partners, expressed the opinion that Beijing is conducting “malicious activities” in cyberspace. However, the White House has so far refrained from announcing any retaliatory steps.
