Experts have begun to connect Chinese cyber campaign patterns with its Belt and Road Initiative projects. “If you take that map of the Belt and Road effort you will also find a pattern of cyber operations,” said one former NSA director. “Regional governments along these [Belt and Road] trade routes will likely be key targets of various espionage campaigns,” reported cyber research company FireEye. These attacks have targeted a range of actors and infrastructure, including the U.N., local governments, U.S. defense contractors, and private companies.
