The Effect of Encryption on Lawful Access to Communications and Data

February 8, 2017 • 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST
Encryption creates both benefits and costs. For this report, we sought data on encryption use and its effect on law enforcement investigations, global markets, and new technologies to better understand the risks that encryption poses to public safety. While the trend toward greater use of unrecoverable encryption suggests that the risk to public safety will increase, we could not find data that suggests this risk is unbearable.  Join us for the launch of this new report and a panel discussion on its recommendations, and the privacy, security, and public safety equities shaping the global encryption debate.
