[Ticker] Report: EU preparing to use new cyber sanctions

The EU is holding quiet talks to impose an asset freeze and travel bans on a Chinese entity, a Russian entity, and several related individuals for alleged cyber attacks in Europe, Bloomberg reports citing five anonymous EU diplomats. The talks could take two more months and require unanimity to go ahead. The EU, last year, passed new laws on targeted sanctions against cyber attackers and people who use chemical weapons.
