(RepublicanNews.org) – China continues to cause concern around the world, especially among Western governments. Richard Moore, also known as “C,” was once an agent for MI6, the United Kingdom’s Secret Intelligence Service, but now he spearheads the entire agency. The expert recently issued a warning about China.
In his first public speech since becoming the head of MI6, Moore warned that China has the ability to harvest data from across the globe and that the foreign nation uses the promise of money to hook people. He also mentioned the communist country’s use of data and debt traps.
MI6 chief Richard Moore on ‘data traps’: “If you allow another country to gain access to really critical data about your society, over time that will erode your sovereignty, you no longer have control over that data.” https://t.co/EmuH8IoEFW

The MI6 leader says that if a country allows an outside entity to gain access to its society’s critical data, it will eventually lose its sovereignty. He mentioned that he believes the United Kingdom is aware of these tactics and effectively defends against them. Some countries, the United States included, could do more to protect its citizens’ identities.
In a later speech at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London, Moore asserted that MI6 recently prioritized China. The leader also warned that Beijing’s overconfidence and miscalculations in dealing with Taiwan could severely threaten global peace. Moore says his decision to be more transparent is essential in a modern-day democracy.
