The
head of U.S. counterintelligence said Tuesday that the intelligence
community had a terrible 2019 hampered by turncoats from within and
outside of government. William R. Evanina, the director of the
National Counterintelligence and Security Center, told a gathering of
cybersecurity professionals that insider threats posed the greatest
risk for Americans. He also previewed a new counterintelligence
strategy to be introduced by the federal government Monday. “We had
a horrible year last year in 2019, with indictments, arrests,
convictions of clearance-holders as well as arrests, indictments,
convictions of non-traditional collectors in the private sector —
theft of intellectual property and trade secrets,” Mr. Evanina said
at a meeting of the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology.
“It was not a good year for industry nor the government.”
