Encryption ecosystem's proliferation tests regulators

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Subject

Encryption regulation.

Significance

Opposition to the United Kingdom’s proposed encryption back door has revealed the difficulty in regulating encryption technologies amid strong pushback from technology companies and privacy activists.

Impacts

  • Cybersecurity breaches will continue to push users towards encrypted services.
  • As privacy concerns rise, encryption on platforms would become standard.
  • Organised criminal and terrorist groups will continue to adapt to law enforcement by shifting to smaller, unregulated platforms.
