Wall Street Journal: Commentary from Dan Hill on Kaspersky Ban
September 15, 2017

“It’s devastating,” said Dan Hill, founder of the communications and government affairs firm Hill Impact. “There’s a blessing and a curse in doing government work in that it’s very hard to win their business but, once you do, it’s a seal of approval. Commercial trends very much follow government approval, but not vice versa.”
“There’s more and more concern about technology,” said Mr. Hill, who also works as a consultant with aerospace and defense contractors. “If you’re buying an automobile or something physical in nature it’s like you can see the technology. But with phones and software, you have entities that could have government ties.”
