Executive Order adds 11 to SDN List
The Office of Foreign Assets Control announced yesterday that the president has issued an Executive Order (EO), "Taking Additional Steps To Address The National Emergency With Respect To Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities." The new EO amends EO 13694, “Blocking the Property of Certain Persons Engaging in Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities.” The amendments allow for the imposition of sanctions on individuals and entities determined to be responsible for tampering, altering, or causing the misappropriation of information with the purpose or effect of interfering with or undermining election processes or institutions. Five entities and four individuals are identified in the Annex of the amended Executive Order and have been added to OFAC’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List). OFAC designated an additional two individuals who also will be added to the SDN List. For details on the entities and individuals designated, see our OFAC Update.
