Tech and Law Enforcement Should Deepen Cooperation to Fight Crime
The Hill, July 27, 2018
By Tommy Ross
From Tommy Ross: Debate about law enforcement’s ability to access encrypted devices and communications remains a stalemate. Law enforcement leaders continue to insist on the need for extraordinary access to encryption in criminal investigations; technology experts note that such an approach would bring untenable risks to the security and privacy of individuals, businesses, and critical infrastructure. While this stalemate persists, a range of other challenges hindering criminal investigations are left unaddressed. This outcome is bad for everyone involved and it is time for a new approach.
