Analysts question viability of last-minute executive order from Trump on IaaS companies’ foreign users
In one of former President Donald Trump’s last acts in office, he signed an executive order that forces US cloud companies to keep track of any foreign customers.
The executive order also allows the Department of Commerce to block certain IaaS companies from providing services to known hackers, people known to have sold accounts to hackers, or people from countries that have been the source of many cloud-enabled cyberattacks.
In a statement, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said the executive order “closes a longstanding, critical, security loophole for United States Infrastructure as a Service products, one abused by those seeking to harm our country.”
