Full Summary: Georgia Tech welcomes James Mulvenon, general manager of SOS International’s Special Programs Division, to discuss the scope and threat posed by Chinese intelligence operations in the United States, as described by senior U.S. counter-intelligence and policy officials. Because much of the literature on Chinese intelligence is either outdated or fatally weakened by mythology and misinformation, the talk will then critically examine some of the prevailing views of Chinese intelligence tradecraft and offer an updated and more nuanced assessment of Beijing's “layered intelligence” approach.

Georgia Institutue of Technology welcomes James Mulvenon, general manager of SOS International’s Special Programs Division, to discuss the scope and threat posed by Chinese intelligence operations in the United States, as described by senior U.S. counter-intelligence and policy officials. Because much of the literature on Chinese intelligence is either outdated or fatally weakened by mythology and misinformation, the talk will then critically examine some of the prevailing views of Chinese intelligence tradecraft and offer an updated and more nuanced assessment of Beijing's “layered intelligence” approach. This new framework will then be applied specifically to the large and growing set of China technology espionage cases, identifying commonalities and differences among them.    

Mulvenon has recruited and trained a team of nearly fifty Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic, Farsi, Dari, Pashto, and Urdu linguist-analysts performing research and analysis for U.S. Government and corporate customers. A Chinese linguist by training, he is a leading international expert on Chinese cyber, technology transfer, espionage, and military issues.

Both the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts and the China Research Center are sponsors for the event.
