MITRE Grand Challenges Power Hour: Stopping IP Theft from China

Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Virtual Speaker Series

Whether through sophisticated remote cyber intrusion, talent recruitment programs, or foreign influence campaigns, theft of American IP, particularly within China, currently costs the US economy over $300 billion a year. Countering this unprecedented and blunt theft is a key challenge of our time. Our response needs to be multifacete and commensurate with China’s broad, diverse campaign that targets US IP in every facet – cyber, malign human influence, supply chain, our policy and open society.

MITRE has embraced this as a key challenge, focusing our internal innovation and convening experts across all sectors to partner in protecting our nation’s innovation and information. 

Join government, industry, and academic leaders, along with MITRE Visiting Fellow Rick Ledgett and MITRE Labs SVP and Chief Futurist Charles Clancy for a robust and forward-looking conversation as we dive deep into this complex problem, outline actions necessary to reduce Chinese success, and begin to lay groundwork for the whole-of-community efforts needed to adequately address the magnitude of this key challenge.
