Since the XX Central Intelligence Agency (XXX) former technician XXX exposed the XX National Security Agency (XXX) large-scale collection of citizen call records, the XX government and the IT industry have been in constant tension.XXX, who once asked XXX to restrict monitoring activities, also hopes to avoid being seen as a departure from reform.
XXXXXX ’s XXX stated: “The government and the IT industry should start by understanding what each other is looking for.”
According to the "XXX Times" report, XX, struggling to find effective means, has issued instructions to the Ministry of Defense to prepare a combat plan for carrying out cyber attacks against XX's communication network and computers.
However, XXX and the intelligence department are against this, believing that if they do too much, it will make it difficult to grasp the trend of XX and collect intelligence. The XX government is in a dilemma.
