"At a hearing in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Tuesday, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle broadly agreed that tech companies must build in ways for law enforcement to access encrypted data or it will do so itself by enacting a federal law," writes IAPP Editor Angelique Carson, CIPP/US. "Lawmakers expressed concern for public safety, including acts of terrorism or crimes like child exploitation, if technology companies don't better cooperate with law enforcement on creating backdoors. But the technology companies that took the witness stand wouldn't make many concessions, citing that breaking down their product's encryption by creating backdoors makes everyone's privacy and security weaker." Carson was at the hearing and has the details for The Privacy Advisor.
