Recent efforts by governments to weaken encryption, introduce exploitable vulnerabilities into applications, and to develop nation-state dragnet surveillance programs will do little to stymie the rise in terrorist attacks. These efforts will be a detriment to national security and only further exhaust law enforcement resources and obfuscate adversary communiqués within a massive cloud of noise.
In our most recent analysis, entitled “The Surveillance State & Censorship Legislation Conundrum: Dragnet Surveillance & Censorship Legislation Will Do Nothing to Eliminate Cyber Jihad & Lone Wolf Recruiting,” ICIT offers insights on this important national security debate by discussing:
• How backdoors for the good guys means backdoors for the bad guys
• The rise of the lone-wolf threat and ease of cyber jihad
• How the failed U.K. surveillance state will become weaker with backdoors and dragnet censorship legislation
• The incorrect notion that surveillance equals security
• The role of artificial intelligence to stymie terrorism
