Beth McCormick, Defense Technology Security Administration director, said the United States counts on its Asian allies to protect the intellectual property of U.S. technology they acquire, FCW reported Wednesday.

Sean Lyngaas writes McCormick told audiences at the Hudson Institute that DoD has been working in the last few months to bolster the government’s control over systems exported to other countries.

McCormick said the U.S. highly recommends allied nations to perform threat assessments, vetting and other security measures when trading technology with other countries, FCW reports.

“We want them to protect the technology and to make sure that they’re not allowing it to go to some place that we wouldn’t actually authorize it to go,” she told the audience.
