Bush and a noted expert on cyber war and counter-terrorism, in which Clarke identifies China’s government and its industries as a major source of the cyber security hacking and espionage that is taking place in 2011. In addition to discussing China’s cyber activity on the video, Clarke outlines four main buckets of cyber attacks today, and why many people consider 2011 the “Year of the Hack.”
