Eran Kahana Interviewed for BBC Article on US-China Cyber Attack Deal

October 5, 2015

Eran Kahana, a technology and intellectual property attorney at Maslon,was interviewed for a September 29, 2015, BBC article titled, "US China deal will not end cyberattacks says US spy chief." The article discusses the recent agreement between the United States and China "not to conduct or support cyberattacks on businesses." The agreement was the result of suspicion that China was "behind several high profile data breeches."

"It will be years before we know if this [agreement] made a difference," Eran asserts in the article. He also warns companies about relaxing security standards in the wake of this agreement, "To think these attacks will end because there is a deal is false. This may give us more of an enforcement environment, but I don't think much more."
