As I have been writing in my articles since I started at TechGenix, I have tried to hammer home the dangers of government threats to encryption. Countless times in the post-9/11 era we have seen privacy overreach from nation-states against international citizens and governments, as well as reprehensible invasive actions against their own citizens. Especially here in the United States, security professionals have had to deal with federal agencies like the FBI assaulting encryption standards. Such examples include the FBI attempting to force Apple into giving a “master key” to the iPhone of San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook, as well as the NSA attacking Cisco servers with a zero-day that allowed mass spying and data collection.

A decision that should be applauded from the EU Parliament!
