China combines financial firepower – currently the world's second largest economy – with a clear intent of fielding a modern military capable of competing not only in the physical environments of land, sea, air, and outer space, but especially in the electromagnetic and cyber domains. In his recently released book, Cyber Dragon, Dean Cheng, The Heritage Foundation’s expert on Chinese military and security developments, makes extensive use of Chinese-language materials to explain the bigger-picture thinking that motivates Chinese cyber warfare. Readers will be able to place the key role of Chinese cyber operations in the overall context of how the Chinese military thinks future wars will be fought and grasp how Chinese computer network operations, including various hacking incidents, are part of a larger, different approach to warfare. Join us for a timely discussion of how the Chinese view information's growing role in warfare and how U.S. policymakers should approach the challenge.
