CDT Europe Joins Open Letter Urging EU Countries to Say No to the CSAR Mass Surveillance Proposal

The Centre for Democracy & Technology (CDT Europe) joined 87 other organisations in urging EU Member States to urgently bring the EU Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) Regulation in conformity with human rights, including the security and confidentiality of online communications.

From the letter:

Hundreds of academics, including those from 19 EU countries, have warned that the proposal is technically dangerous and poses a serious threat to encryption. This could put the 2 billion people worldwide who rely on encryption to keep their digital lives safe and secure at risk – including the very children this law aims to protect.
