The United States faces an alarming and growing threat of cyberattacks from Russia. Some in Congress would compound these dangers by enacting legislation that would force America’s leading tech companies to allow access to their software, hardware, and operating systems to customers and competitors in the U.S. and overseas. Of particular concern is the American Innovation and Choice Online Act. While this measure has exceptions for access for potential cybersecurity threats, the language governing this is vague, and the enforcement powers given to regulators to compel access are exceptionally strong. The Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in InsideSources here.
