On Monday, the new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey warned about the constant breaches to the nation’s cyber-security and continued vulnerability to cyber-terrorism.

U.S. military officials have frequently warned that cyber threats are an area of increasing focus and regardless of the Pentagon budget woes, more investment in cyber-security is critical. General Dempsey made the comments at a forum in London.

“We lose enormous intellectual property rights. We’re under constant attack every day. And it’s going to take a whole government approach” said Dempsey.
In an intelligence report prepared for Congress earlier this month, China and Russia were identified as the most active nations that are using cyber-espionage to steal U.S. trade and technology secrets. China in particular, is accused of massive ongoing cyberespionage against American companies.
