Top US intelligence official takes veiled shot at Google | Fifth Domain

As U.S. government agencies seek to partner with the private sector to thwart cyberattacks and election meddling, the top U.S. intelligence official questioned the logic of American companies who refuse to work with the U.S. government but partner with China.

Without explicitly naming Google, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Oct. 18 during an event hosted by Cyberscoop that “some companies are reluctant to partner with us because they believe that it could hurt their brand name.”

“Nevertheless, some of these very same companies turn right around and pursue access and production opportunities in China,” Coats said.
