The officials said the actions would be combined with some kind of economic sanctions though. There are few truly effective sanctions. Left to impose and an executive order for mr biden to accelerate the hardening of federal government networks after the russian hacking which went undetected for months until it was discovered by a private cybersecurity firm.

Biden Imposes Sanctions on Generals Who Engineered Myanmar Coup
"At russian protests. Plenty of people holding up gold painted toilet. Brushes luxuriant lose can tell you a lot about despotic leaders. So we head into the smallest rooms from history but i for the sixth consecutive day across me on mar. Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets. They've been demonstrating since the military seized power last week. Overthrowing the elected government of aung san suu achieve. The army has claimed without evidence that an election in november one by miss sushi's party was fraudulent cinema. Today you've got. Where do ya on monday. The top military commander now in charge me. An online made his first televised address since the coup. He restated pledge to hold elections after year long state of emergency and he tried to reassure the public and investors that his interim government would be different from the oppressive That ran the country for nearly half a century. But america said yesterday it will impose fresh sanctions in response to the coup. I've approved a new executive order enabling us to sanction the military leaders who directed the coup their business interests as well as close family members and myanmar's biggest protest movement in a generation isn't backing down every night since the army toppled me and mars civilian government on february. First people all over. The country have banged their pots and pans at atm. This is an old ritual to cast out evil spirits which has morphed into a protest. Totally mccann are southeast. Asia correspondent. Many of these demonstrations have the air of carnival yesterday about one hundred young women paraded around downtown gone wearing disney princess outfits because they wanted to make the point that it wasn't just grownups who are angry about the coup. It's also girls. Their age and the streets are flooded with red balloons. Red being the color of aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party then lt in fact if you look at pictures today you won't see that many red balloons anymore. Because they've all sold out and how has the military reacted to all these protests. What's changed since we spoke just over a week ago when the protests hadn't started but there was clearly discontent about the coup. The army is trying to put a stop to these protests on monday. It's ian named true news. Information team issued a statement saying that action would be taken against wrongdoers who disrupt the state stability true to their word in cities across the country. Police are lobbing tear gas into crowds firing water cannon in mandalay me and mars second city. The police tried to disperse a crowd by beating them with truncheons and police are also firing rubber bullets. Three protesters are now being treated for wounds from bullets. And two people in the capital naypyidaw were shot with what seems to have been live ammunition and so as the military response ramps up our people frightened of what might happen if they continue to take the streets. Yeah i mean despite the carnival ask air of some of these protests. There is a deep sense of foreboding. Military rule only ended ten years ago so people remember how the previous junta crush dissent huge rallies took place nine hundred eighty eight and two thousand and seven and the army responded by shooting into crowds of protesters killing hundreds of people so protesters today are right to be worried. And they're alive. The fact that the military regime is up to his old tricks again. Agents from feared intelligence service or knocking on doors driving many activists and journalists into hiding at least two hundred people have arrested and on monday ninety districts including in the largest city and the capital impose curfews and restricted gatherings to no more than five people effectively criminalizing public assembly and last night the draft of new cybersecurity law. The government wants to pass was leaked. This would give regime sweeping powers to control the internet and effectively end free speech online so given all of those risks. Who is it that that's daring to go out into the streets. It is people from all walks of life. Teenagers labor's professionals. Lots of people are on strike teachers. Firefighters and health workers government workers are resigning en masse among them the entirety of the ministry of welfare. We saw extraordinary scenes on tuesday. The handful of officers in the police force actually broke ranks and join the protesters extraordinary because the police under the command of the army. So it's very unusual for them to be doing this and joining them yesterday. Where nearly fifty police officers from kaya state who declared their opposition to the coup. And what does it they all want. Of course they to reverse the coup they want to restore democracy and they want the release of their hero. Aung san suu cheap as well as other members of her nationally for democracy party who also been detained and do you think there's a chance that with all of this unrest who might backfire on the general's not just the response of people i suppose but also international response. It certainly hasn't been the fate of they expected. Mass resignations. i mentioned are roiling. the bureaucracy and form businesses are exiting the country so analysts saying it's going to be very difficult to see how they got some kind of status quo ante and younger generations are not going to back down easily. They're educated than they were a decade ago more organized and much more connected because of the arrival of the internet about a decade ago us leaders demands are hardening. They're talking about ending army rule altogether and scrapping the constitution which the generals wrote some activists. I interviewed said that if non violent protests fail they are bent on taking weapons and fighting when it comes to the international community in america. President joe biden said yesterday that he had approved an executive order that will pave the way for new. us sanctions. We will identify first round of targets this week. And we're also going to impose strong exports controls we're freezing. Us assets that benefit the burmese government while maintaining our support for healthcare civil society groups and other areas that benefit the people of burma directly but will these sanctions do much. Do you think. Joe biden has staked his foreign policy on reinvigorating democracy around the world. And that's why he's so keen throughout these sanctions but they are unlikely to convince the generals to change course just two years ago and nineteen the commander in chief minister lying and three other generals had sanctions placed on them by the us they proceeded with their coup. Anyway they're used to being isolated by the world and i just don't think that america's sanctions are going to convince them to change course. I feel that this conflict from the protest was in the army may be coming to ahead. The commander in chief is a deeply proud man and he will not stand by as the institution to which is dedicated to his career is humiliated by protesters and disney princess outfits at the same time. The protesters are digging in their heels. I think it's become clear that over the last week there's no returning to the quasi democracy at me and mom -joyed of the last decade either. The army cracks down and it's returned to the battle. Days of military rule or a new political system is going to emerge from the rooms of the old one. My fear is that the former scenario seems much will likely the ladder.
Canada Formally Declares Proud Boys a Terrorist Group
"Group that took part in the capital siege is now considered a terror group in Canada. Canada listed the proud boys and a dozen other extremist groups as terrorist entities in part, public safety Minister Bill Blair said because of the January 6th riot at the U. S. Capitol is disturbing and concerning is as those images and those events were They also provided law enforcement and our intelligence services with a trove of new information on voice joins Al Qaeda and Isis on Canada's terror list. Some of these groups are in fact, quite odious and and and their activities and their rhetoric is vile. The designation freezes assets and open supporters to criminal sanctions.
China gets in on the SolarWinds act
"Reuters reports that the fbi investigation of the solar wind supply. Chain attack is looking into evidence that chinese threat actors successfully exploited a vulnerability in the company's software to compromise the national finance center a payroll system operated by the us department of agriculture. The department of agriculture's reaction to the story is ambiguous. The agriculture department emailed reuters to say that. Usda has notified all customers including individuals and organizations whose data has been affected by the solar winds orion code compromise but a second departmental spokesman said after the story broke that there was no data breach related to solar winds at usda but offered no further clarification the vulnerability the chinese threat actors are believed to have exploited is said to be different from the one used by. Unc twenty four fifty two. The thread actor widely believed to be a russian intelligence service. Reuters anonymous sources told them that the campaign used and infrastructure that have been previously deployed by state backed chinese cyber spies as the washington post observes many have suspected another group was also actively exploiting solar winds but reuters. Report is the first to suggest that this second threat actor was connected to the chinese government. The chinese foreign ministry denied any involvement observing i and in fairness correctly that attribution is a complex technical issue the ministry then moved onto unlikely insistence on the usual pieties. China resolutely opposes and combat's any form of cyber attacks and cyber theft. It's doubtful that any government on the planet even say the holy sea or san marino resolutely opposes any form of cyber attack unless cyber attack is construed narrowly as to rule out any form of interception surveillance or retaliation if any pure cyber are running any government. It's doubtful that government is in beijing. Some have said that majors cyber attacks are often more like riots than bank jobs with multiple actors going after the same targets for their own reasons. Reuters quotes former. Us chief information security officer retired air force general gregory to hill. Who thinks it's not that unusual for more than one group to hit the same product. He prefers the racing metaphor to the criminal. One quote it wouldn't be the first time we've seen a nation state actor surfing in behind someone else. It's like drafting in nascar. To heal said it's worth noting that while the national finance center is housed in the department of agriculture. Its responsibilities aren't confined there. The nfc also handles payroll for other government agencies. Some of the more interesting ones from the point of view of national security are the fbi the state department the department of homeland security and the treasury department the nfc claims on its website to payroll more than six hundred thousand employees and also provides customizable and flexible financial management services and integrated shared service solutions. The data held by the nfc would include social security numbers phone numbers personal email addresses and banking information and also associations between individual employees and their agencies. Such information is useful for building. Human target dossiers of individuals of interest and chinese services have shown an appetite for such sweeping collection in the past against the us most notably in the office of personnel management breach of two thousand fifteen
Surveillance And Local Police: How Technology Is Evolving Faster Than Regulation
"Are used to the idea of that American intelligence services, such as the National Security Agency have enormous capacities to track our phone calls, emails and movements. And we hope that rational and constitutional rules for their use are set by our elected leaders. But our guest journalist John Fast Man says most of us don't realize that thousands of police departments across the country also have access to some really powerful surveillance tools with relatively little oversight. There are devices that scan and store the locations of thousands of auto license plates they encounter randomly on the street. Portable gadgets called Sting rays that Elektronik Lee mimic a cell phone tower and get every mobile phone within range to yield its data and cameras, cameras everywhere increasingly with facial recognition software. Fast ones. New book explores these new technologies, the questions they raise about privacy and the controls he believes citizen should impose on the agencies that use them. His book is we see it all Liberty and justice in an age of perpetual surveillance. John Fast Man is the U. S. Digital editor for the Economist and the author of Two novels. He joins me from his home in suburban New York. John Fast Man. Welcome to Fresh Air. You know this book races? Ah lot of skeptical questions about law enforcement. And I'd like to begin by just having you explain what kind of time you spent with police officers and police chiefs and sheriffs and others. Observing their practice and getting their point of view. Well over the course of my report and going back to 2010. When I was the Atlanta correspondent for the Economist, I've I've written a great deal about criminal justice issues, and I've embedded with a number of departments over the past decade for this book. In particular, I probably spent the most time with the LAPD. I went out with their patrol division. And I spent time with with Sean Danowski, who was then an assistant chief learning about a predictive policing program They use called prayed pole and we can talk about that later. I also embedded for several days with the Newark Police Department. Toe learn about how technology is used by police officers in their day to day job. So one of the one of the challenges and writing about this is that I would hear about this technology from tech companies and from police chiefs from a sort of 30,000 ft view, But I really wanted to see how police officers as they work integrate technology into their daily jobs, how it changes the sort of practice Of being a police officer. Okay, So let's talk about some of these technologies. One of the things, of course, that people are aware of his video surveillance. I mean, there are You know, security cameras in so many places that police typically Consult after there are crimes and given areas, But you're looking at ways that this is being expanded in, particularly in Newark, New Jersey police have something called citizen Virtual Patrol. You don't explain what this is how it works. Sure, the Citizen Virtual Patrol is a network of cameras placed throughout the city. These air public cameras now one of the things when you talk about CCTV cameras, the overall majority of them are privately owned. But these citizen virtual patrol Is the network composed of publicly owned cameras that people can access from a laptop. Now the idea behind this was to sort of allow people to observe and perhaps testified of crimes from behind a veil of anonymity. So it gives people an eye on the entire city and let people see what's going on. And John. When you say people, you mean just ordinary citizens, Anybody can dial up and look through these cameras. So that's right. A citizen anywhere can log into this citizens Virtual Patrol of Newark, So I live about 50 Miles north of New York, and I could log in at my desk and see the feed from any one of the 126 cameras that the New York Public Safety Department is placed around the city. It seems a little intrusive, right? I mean, somebody who just wants to be a busy body. I guess. Other people would say it's no different from looking out a window, right? You're not peeping into somebody's apartment. What concerns does this race? That's right, technically. The cameras don't show anything that an observer on the street couldn't see so that shows public streets. It's not aimed at anyone's apartment. It's not looking inside anyone's window. On the other hand. It does show people's yards, where they have a slightly higher expectation of privacy, and it could provide some information that people wouldn't want known about. For instance, if I'm you know, let's say I had an ex who lived in Newark and I was watching the camera trained on her house. If I saw her leave with some suitcases and then saw no activity at her house for a couple of days. I could surmise that she wasn't there. I could also know when she goes out when she comes home who comes to a house all these things that of course I could. I could find out if I observed her in front of her house. But that would make me visible. This renders me invisible and it lets me observe, lets anyone who logs in observed an enormous swath of the city. So that's another thing. I think we need to think about when we're thinking of police technologies, and that is that any single instance maybe unobjectionable, but when it comes to scale, you're talking about something very different. Do the police think that it's been helpful. Have there been any complaints or any notable benefits to you know, to law enforcement from having all of these windows on the street? The police do think it's been helpful. The police think it helps people keep an eye on their neighborhood. I think the idea was that a citizen of a certain neighborhood could keep an eye on what was happening around her without sort of making herself known to other people around her as as someone who's watching, So it lets her Keep an eye on what's happening around her behind that veil of anonymity and the Newark police think that's good public safety. On the other hand, I spoke to the director almost Sinha, who's the director of the value of New Jersey, who made the same point that that I just made that what we're talking about is it scale quite different and the camera sort of give information about people in their private activities. That you wouldn't necessarily want to know, and that if you did try to find out, you would be observed. This lets you do so anonymously and invisibly and that anonymity. Invisibility has benefits, according to the Newark police, and also detriments, according to U S. C. L U
