Grant Schneider, federal chief information security officer, said China is considered to be the biggest threat to the U.S. in the cyber space domain, The Hill reported Wednesday.

China is “an adversary that has displayed their intent, has clear means to get into and attack our critical infrastructure systems, our government systems, you name it, both from an intellectual property theft point of view, as well as an espionage point of view,” he said at the Billington Cybersecurity Summit in Washington.

His statements come amid the current administration’s trade dispute with China, stemming from national security concerns associated with Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei.
