September 28, 2015

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.

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.
