House Passes HR 3364 – Cyber Sanctions

Today the House passed HR 3364, the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act by a nearly unanimous vote of 419 to 3. The bill includes provisions requiring the President to enforce various economic sanctions against anyone in Russia whom the President determines “knowingly engages in significant activities undermining cybersecurity against any person, including a democratic institution, or government on behalf of the Government of the Russian Federation” {§224(a)(1)(A)}.

I’ll be doing a more thorough review of this bill in the near future.
