Much of the  U.S. Government’s annual $90 billion spent on information technology is devoted to Chinese products, which creates the opportunity for China to seed U.S. government offices with spyware and electronic backdoors that can be exploited for cyber attacks, said Jennifer Bisceglie, chief executive of Interos Solutions, which conducted a recently released study.https://www.uscc.gov/sites/default/files/Research/Interos_Supply%20Chain%20Vulnerabilities%20from%20China%20in%20U.S.%20Federal%20ICT_final.pdf
