As it became known, the law on stopping the use of Kaspersky programs came into force in the United States. The main office of this company is located in Russia, and all information is transferred there. Actions were taken to prevent the leakage of important information outside the US. To be more precise, the FBI staff was instructed to conduct conversations with employees of Kaspersky. The purpose of these conversations was to find out exactly what data is being transmitted to the main office and where this information is going. After all, the US government suspects the Russian company in cooperation with the Kremlin. In this regard, the prohibition of Kaspersky programs is the only way out of this situation.
Eugene Kaspersky already said that such behavior on the part of the US is unacceptable. First of all, according to the founder of the company, there is no evidence of cooperation between Kaspersky Lab and the Kremlin. He declares that this firm is independent, the more it provides its services to different countries of the world. It has been any incidents never before when information leaks or national security breaches. Also, the company agrees to a detailed investigation of its actions and it is even ready to help. Kaspersky himself is sure that a detailed check can confirm that the company is impeccably following the laws of other countries.
The initiator of the conflict is Jin Shahin, who is a senator of the Democratic Party. She says that Kaspersky Lab is working with the Kremlin. In this regard, she believes that the prohibition of Kaspersky programs will help to prevent threats of hacking infrastructure sites. These nodes include computer systems that are necessary to ensure the security of the US state. Also, the senator asserts that both the Congress and the administration of President Donald Trump support the banning of Kaspersky programs.
Therefore, its introduction into action remains a matter of time. First of all, this bill must be approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate. After approval, the documents will be transferred to the presidential administration. Donald Trump, in turn, will have to sign them in order to enforce the prohibition of Kaspersky programs.
