UK’s cyber security boss says to watch out for China and Russia

Russia is posing a huge threat to the cyber space of the United Kingdom. Also China’s dominance in new technologies has the capability of transforming the 21st century, the head of Britain’s cyber security center said.

“We must be clear-eyed about Chinese ambition in technological advancement,” said Cameron, a former official in the Northern Ireland office. “China will change the world we live in in a much more fundamental way than Russia will.”

Cameron has warned against the smugness and said the CEO of the companies should take interest in cyber security.

“Cyber security is still not taken as seriously as it should be, and simply is not embedded into the UK’s boardroom thinking,” she said.

“Recent global cyber incidents involving SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange have shown the range of cyber threats we currently face,” she said.
