Cyber Security Alert - Federal Government Removes Kaspersky Lab From Approved Vendor List

Posted By IAMU, Tuesday, July 25, 2017

In a recent article in the Washington Post it has been reported that the federal government has removed Kaspersky Lab from their approved vendor list. 

In the article they identify numerous local governments that may have this software protecting their systems and therefore may be vulnerable to compromise. The article states “those systems, while not necessarily protecting critical infrastructure, can be targeted by hackers because they provide access to troves of sensitive information.” 

If this software is used to protect critical systems such as electric, water or gas utility control systems that may be a concern in light of this change in federal government policy.
