Report: Trump Administration Plans Use of Federal Regulations for Global Cyber Governance

An official of the State Department said in a Nextgov report published Monday that government officials plan to present to President Donald Trump regulatory actions along with traditional approaches to cyberattacks sponsored by adversary nations.

The State Department recommended to the administration in May the development of broad, proactive and customized methods for the deterrence of cyber adversaries, the report said.

Current government responses to cyber threats include the Federal Communications Commission‘s plans in March to restrict the access to U.S. contract opportunities of countries that pose national security risks, the publication noted.

The Treasury Department had previously implemented sanctions against Russian officials for the NotPetya malware and the U.S. election interference. Sanctions were also imposed against North Korean officials for the cyber breach against Sony Pictures Entertainment, the report detailed.

The Justice Department has also charged since 2014 state-sponsored hackers from China, Iran and Russia for attacks against the U.S., the publication said.
