In advance of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s first state visit to America, The Financial Times spoke with Litigation partner and leader of Kaye Scholer’s Global Cybersecurity & Privacy group, Adam Golodner, regarding potential US sanctions on Chinese hackers. White House officials were divided over whether sanctions on Chinese companies connected to cyber theft of US intellectual property should be imposed before the Xi visit.
Golodner weighed in on the sanctions: “There was a recognition that there needed to be more tools for deterrence and to raise the costs of these attacks. Sanctions are a powerful tool because it affects your ability to do business. There is a certain amount of symmetry in imposing economic sanctions on the actors that benefited economically.”
