The Pentagon’s first chief software officer Nicolas Chaillan told the Financial Times he resigned from his post at the Department of Defense due to the failure of the U.S. to respond to Chinese cyber and other threats that are putting his children’s future at risk.
“We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it’s already a done deal; it is already over in my opinion,” he said, adding there was “good reason to be angry.” He also said that U.S. cyber defenses in some government departments were at “kindergarten level.” Chaillan plans to testify to Congress about the Chinese cyber threat to U.S. supremacy, including in classified briefings, over the coming weeks.
