The cache of more than 250,000 sensitive diplomatic cables acquired by 
WikiLeaks, only a fraction of which have been released, appear to 
contain many details on the technology and Internet policies, 
cybersecurity practices, and IT systems of the U.S. government and other 

InformationWeek=E2=80=99s analysis of the cables already released and of the 
subject headers of unreleased cables, along with media reports of 
unreleased cables showing evidence of Chinese involvement in 
cyber-attacks against Google, finds thousands of references to the role 
that technology plays in 21st Century diplomacy.

According to statistics provided by WikiLeaks, there are 9,329 cables 
about trade and technology controls, 2,553 about intellectual property 
rights, 574 about "economic and commercial Internet," and hundreds more 
on critical infrastructure protection, Internet technology, automated 
data processing, global IT modernization, and Internet administration. 
The U.S. government is vigorously opposed to the public release of the 
documents, many of which are confidential or secret in nature.

In one cable, a Brazilian general expresses concern that his country's 
government is falling behind in protecting its classified and 
unclassified computer systems. He welcomes American assistance in 
helping to secure them, recommending the possibility of "courses" and 
"visits" to ameliorate the problem.
