BSA's Tommy Ross on The CyberWire Caveat Podcast
The CyberWire Caveat Podcast, February 12, 2020
Hosted by Dave Bittner and Ben Yelin
From Tommy Ross, Senior Director of Policy: We're kind of stuck in a cycle that has repeated itself several times over the years in which the conversation is really focused on how law enforcement can either mandate or compel industry voluntarily to implement exceptional access to encryption in order to help law enforcement access digital evidence. And obviously, that's a proposition that has proved to be unattractive in the past and I think has generally just resulted in a stalemate, and I think that's what we're seeing now. And I think it ultimately misses a big opportunity because digital evidence as a forensic discipline is, No. 1, evolving very quickly. And No. 2, it takes into account a lot of considerations that go well beyond encryption. And we're missing the opportunity to make progress in helping law enforcement address a lot of those considerations while we're focused on that stalemate.
