President Joe Biden on Monday limited how the federal government can use commercial spyware that officials say poses a growing threat to government workers and information systems.
Biden signed an executive order prohibiting intelligence agencies and other departments from using commercial spyware considered a national security risk or that has been used improperly abroad, such as to target activists and journalists.
The order comes ahead of a democracy summit Biden is co-hosting this week. The administration hopes it will spur international collaboration to fight the misuse of spyware.
