Global Encryption Coalition Webinar: Government Hacking
Date: Thursday, February 25th 2021 at 11:00-12:30 EST (16:00-17:30 UTC)
The Global Encryption Coalition presents a webinar on ‘Government Hacking‘.
In recent months, governments’ technical capabilities to search mobile devices has come under greater scrutiny. Newly published research from academics and organizations like Upturn have cast new light on how governments may be gaining access to mobile devices and its consequences. The American Civil Liberties Union has also launched a lawsuit against the FBI, demanding they disclose records of its “technological capabilities for retrieving information from locked electronic devices.” At the same time, across the Atlantic, Europol has seemed to pour resources into government hacking with the launch of its new “Decryption Platform.”
Experts from academia and civil society will discuss government hacking, its consequences for security and privacy, and its influence on the debate around end-to-end encryption.
