DHS bans Kaspersky software use by feds

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is ordering federal agencies and departments to stop using software produced by Russian firm Kaspersky Lab, citing potential risks to U.S. national security.

The department says it's concerned about ties between certain Kaspersky employees and the Russian government.

Elaine Duke, the department’s acting secretary, issued a binding operational directive on Wednesday ordering federal executive bodies to identify any Kaspersky cybersecurity products on their information systems within the next 30 days and come up with “detailed plans” to remove the security software.
