Summary
The U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned twelve executives from Kaspersky Lab, citing national security risks posed by the company's ties to the Russian government. This follows the Biden administration's ban on the sale of Kaspersky antivirus software, effective July 20, 2024, due to concerns over Russia's potential misuse of the software to access sensitive U.S. data. The Department of Commerce also added Kaspersky entities to the Entity List, restricting their operations. Current U.S. users of Kaspersky products are urged to switch to alternative software for security reasons, though they are not penalized for existing use.
