McConnell Talks EWI's Encryption Report with VOA

Media Coverage | February 28, 2018

Bruce McConnell talked to Voice of America about the institute's new report on encryption, acknowledging the clash between the needs of law enforcement, technologists and privacy advocates to access personal information.

"Strong encryption is an important tool to protect business information, personal data, privacy and other human rights. At the same time, criminals are increasingly using cyber tools to plan and implement crimes," said McConnell, who leads EWI's cyberspace program.

McConnell also spoke about ensuring balance in the report's recommendations. The report was launched at the 2018 Munich Security Conference on February 16.
