The FBI wants to help people understand China's tactics through videos and report any suspicious contacts on SNS.
In recent years, the FBI has tightened its crackdown on espionage by China, arresting former CIA and Pentagon officials on suspicion of passing confidential information to China, as well as setting the stage at companies and universities. We are also becoming more vigilant against industrial espionage and academic spies.
