Pressure mounts on the beleaguered antivirus company Kaspersky as the European Union considers banning its technology. A new California law protects data related to abortions. And the Coast Guard has some work to do with its cyber staff. This is CyberScoop for Sept. 28.

Can Kaspersky survive the Ukraine war?

Despite suffering years of government bans in the U.S. and Britain and mounting suspicions of links to Russian intelligence services, Moscow’s most famous cybersecurity company, Kaspersky, managed to persevere. But the Ukraine war has given its critics even more ammunition and now a new wave of potential actions aimed at Kaspersky as an additional means of punishing Moscow over the war adds even more pressure on the already beleaguered company. AJ Vicens reports.

California creates 'data haven' for abortion

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday signed another stack of bills aimed at protecting abortion access, including one that intends to make the state a “data haven” by prohibiting the state’s tech companies and law enforcement agencies from cooperating with certain out-of-state investigations. Assembly Bill 1242, one of 13 measures Newsom signed Tuesday, prohibits California law-enforcement agencies from sharing information related to a legal abortion that’s being investigated by out-of-state agencies. It also blocks companies headquartered in the state — particularly major tech firms like Google and Facebook — from turning data over to out-of-state authorities investigating an abortion procedure that would be legal in California. Benjamin Freed writes in StateScoop.

Coast Guard has cyber workforce issues

The Government Accountability Office has called on the U.S. Coast Guard to improve its cyber workforce and set out six key recommendations the service should follow in order to do so. The recommendations include adopting measures to better determine staff needs and establishing a strategic workforce plan for cyber. GAO’s assessment comes after the Coast Guard over the last two years has been hit with multiple cyberattacks and struggled to recruit and retain its critical cyber workforce. The recommendations were included in a new report published on Tuesday. Nihal Krishan reports for FedScoop.
