Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable, discusses difficulties with keeping international anti-hacking agreements afloat, and the importance of proportional responses.


Officials from the United States and China met last Friday to discuss cybersecurity issues. This meeting came after reports that China has been skirting a 2015 agreement to stop hacking U.S. assets. National Security Agency official Rob Joyce told Reuters that while the number of attacks have decreased “dramatically” since the agreement, they haven’t stopped altogether. Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable, says that the current trade disputes have made negotiations tough.   “We were making progress with China. I think we were very far along in getting them to stop attacks on U.S. companies and slow down attacks on government agencies. Unfortunately, because of the other trade talks, China has felt that we are trying to wiggle out of the agreements and they don’t feel the need to honor agreements in other places,” Schwartz said. If you start to put pressure in one place, it comes out somewhere else. I think it’s good to know that we can have pressure on them and it does work. If we want that to work, we need a more holistic agreement.
