Chinese President Xi Jinping delivers a speech for Mexican and Chinese businessmen during a meeting in Mexico City, on June 5, 2013.

Tomorrow, President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping will hold a two-day meeting in Rancho Mirage. On the top of the agenda will be cyber-espionage. The US Defense Department, for the first time, has named the Chinese government as the culprit behind a series of major cyber attacks on the US government and businesses, prompting China's top internet security chief to say he has plenty of evidence indicating that China has been the victim of extensive US hacking.

Guests:
Jeff Carr, CEO of Taia Global, a boutique security firm specializing in the protection of critical data at risk for espionage or theft

David Damato, Director of Mandiant, a cyber-security firm that protect data from targeted cyber attacks
