Secret US cybersecurity report: encryption vital to protect private data watch

    • Thread Starter

    A secret US cybersecurity report warned that government and private computers were being left vulnerable to online attacks from Russia, China and criminal gangs because encryption technologies were not being implemented fast enough.

    The advice, in a newly uncovered five-year forecast written in 2009, contrasts with the pledge made by David Cameron this week to crack down on encryption use by technology companies.

    That settles it then, our PM, Home Secretary and new head of mi5 really did go full retard.
