Push back in Western capitals on sanctions agains Kaspersky Lab

The United States and Europe are concerned that sanctions against Russia’s Kaspersky Lab will increase the risk of Russian cyberattacks against Western countries, according to the the Wall Street Journal.

As a result, discussions about possible sanctions against Kaspersky Lab at the US Department of the Treasury have been pushed back.

Previously, the Federal Communications Commission of the United States has added Kaspersky Lab products to its list of devices and services that pose a national security risk.
