FBI Cyber Division Assistant Director Bryan Vorndran released the following statement in response to a joint National Security Agency, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and FBI cybersecurity advisory regarding Chinese state-sponsored cyber operations.

The FBI and our partners are determined to disrupt the increasingly sophisticated Chinese state-sponsored cyber activity that targets U.S. political, economic, military, education, and counterintelligence personnel and organizations.
