US Government Activates New Advanced Technology Security Strike Force

The U.S. government has activated a new interagency strike force designed to protect American technology from foreign adversaries.

According to U.S. Deputy Attorney-General Lisa Monaco, the Disruptive Technology Strike Force will be led by the departments of Justice and Commerce and will include top experts who would share their knowledge and insights to tackle national security threats. Speaking at an event hosted by the Chatham House think tank, Monaco shared that the strike force will use intelligence and data analytics to target adversaries.

The group will also rely on private-public partnerships to strengthen the U.S. technology supply chain and identify threats to semiconductors and other critical assets, Breaking Defense reported Tuesday.

According to a press release from the Justice Department, the strike force will also investigate and prosecute export law violations, take advantage of international partnerships in law enforcement and use data and intelligence resources for investigations.

The U.S. government has been ramping up efforts in protecting American technologies from adversaries. In late October, the government took steps to finalize a deal with allies to limit China’s access to advanced semiconductors and equipment.

Alan Estevez, the undersecretary of commerce for industry and security, said officials are working to ensure that export controls announced by the Bureau of Industry and Security are implemented in other countries.
