科技报道 - 美国采取行动应对黑客威胁

From VOA Learning English, this is the Technology Report in Special English.

这里是美国之音慢速英语科技报道。

The United States has announced a plan to fight the quickly growing threat from cyber spies and Internet attackers known as hackers. America’s Attorney General Eric Holder recently said that ever - improving technology is making it easier for people and countries to strike at the United States.

美国宣布了一项计划,以应对被称为黑客的网络间谍和互联网攻击者快速增长的威胁。美国司法部长埃里克·霍尔德(Eric Holder)日前表示,不断改进的技术使得个人或其它国家攻击美国更为容易。

Mister Holder said the Justice Department is fighting back aggressively. He said it is working with various states and government agencies to find and bring to justice those involved in cyber theft and cyber espionage. And, the attorney general called for increased co-operation with private companies. He described the importance of keeping trade secrets a secret.

霍尔德表示司法部正积极反击。他说,司法部正与各州和政府机构合作找出这些涉及网络盗窃和网络间谍的人,并将其绳之以法。他还呼吁加强与私营公司的合作,并指出了保护商业机密的重要性。

Attorney General Eric Holder: “A single trade secret can be worth millions – or even billions – of dollars. Trade secret theft can require companies to lay off employees, close factories, to lose sales and profits, to experience a decline in competitive position and advantage, or even to go out of business.”

美国司法部长霍尔德表示:“单单一项商业机密就可能价值数百万甚至数十亿美元。商业机密盗窃会导致公司裁员、关闭工厂、丢掉销售额和利润,使得公司失去竞争地位和优势,甚至倒闭。”

The new policy also calls for fines and trade actions against individuals and countries that target American trade secrets.

新政策还呼吁对觊觎美国商业机密的个人或国家发起罚款与贸易制裁。
