Mexican digital rights organization Red en Defensa de los Derechos Digitales has released its second annual report, ¿Quién defiende mis datos?, which evaluates the strength of eight major Mexican telecoms' user privacy protections, the Electronic Frontier Foundation reports. The study found AT&T had the most privacy protections. "The company has adopted industry accepted best practices," like publishing transparency reports and "explicitly [promising] to request a warrant when collaborating with law enforcement," the report states. However, none of the surveyed telecom companies promised to notify users when law enforcement requested their data and some did not adequately protect data from government access. As a result, the Mexican telecom industry "has yet not caught up to the global industry standards that safeguard user data from unwarranted access and data retention demands," the report adds.
