    The leader of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, which works within DHS, is concerned primarily with risk management, Chinese threats to supply chains and election security. What are your thoughts on this?

    The Department of Homeland Security’s central cybersecurity agency is focused on addressing the “persistent threat” posed by Chinese hackers, improving election security and defending against ransomware attacking government systems, according to a strategy memo released by the department. 

    In his agency’s “strategic intent” document, Christopher Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), said the agency is looking to improve the country’s supply chain risk management when it comes to China. The U.S. has consistently accused Chinese hackers of attempting to compromise American companies and systems, particularly through 5G or other technology.
