China’s control of cyber technology ‘poses a threat to us all’, spy chief warns | The world | News

The intelligence officer will deliver his speech at the Royal United Services Institute in London. The speech will largely focus on the threat posed by China in terms of its use of online technologies and those in space that pose a “threat to us all”.

According to Sir Jeremy, the UK must take action now to address and challenge China’s control of technology as we are at a “sliding door moment in history”.

According to the GCHQ chief, if action is not taken now, Britain will pay the price later.

It is believed by intelligence that China is capable of constructing a powerful anti-satellite device to rival GPS and prevent other nations from accessing space in the event of a conflict.

Sir. Fleming will note concerns in his speech that the BeiDou satellite system, which Beijing can export globally, could have the ability to track individuals.

He will add that the development of such devices could pose a “tremendous threat to all of us” as the Chinese Communist Party tries to use major developments to increase its power at home and influence people globally.

Another concerning technological advance in China is the creation of a centralized digital currency that can allow monitoring of user transactions.

This kind of technology could also help China protect its own economy in the event that similar sanctions are imposed against what Russia is doing.

“I am confident that together we can tilt it in our collective favor.”

Military chiefs in Britain and the United States have repeatedly criticized China’s actions with satellites in space.

Some military experts believe that future conflicts may be won and lost in space because of how dependent humans are on satellites.
