Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to deliver early Thursday a speech on internet freedom following the cyber attacks on Google in China.
Alec Ross, Clinton's senior adviser for innovation, said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that Clinton will propose new policies and programs and will warn that those perpetrating such attacks should face consequences.
Clinton's speech is set for 9:30 a.m. Eastern at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., and will be streamed live here.
Countries or individuals that engage in cyber attacks should face consequences and international condemnation, Clinton will say, according to excerpts of her remarks prepared for delivery.
In an interconnected world, an attack on one nation's networks can be an attack on all, Clinton will say.
Clinton's speech has been scheduled for some time, however, it coincidentally comes just 10 days after Google said it may leave China because of censorship following a cyber attack from China which targeted human rights activists.
