Diese bedenkliche Entwicklung hin zu einem ebenso idiotischen wie gefährlichen Trend unter Jugendlichen muss der EU-Kommission, die über ausgezeichnete Statistiken verfügt, schon seit Jahren bekannt sein. Bekannt gemacht wurde das nicht, vielmehr wurden die großen Zuwächse an „Kinderpornographie“ im Netz von Kommissarin Ylva Johansson zum Versuch benutzt, Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung aus dem Netz zu drängen und ein Regime totaler Internetüberwachung wie in China und im Iran einzuführen.
We’ve seen big victories in our fight to defend encryption. But we haven’t done it alone. That’s why we’re proud this year to join dozens of other organizations in the Global Encryption Coalition as we celebrate the first Global Encryption Day, which is today, October 21, 2021.
For this inaugural year, we’re joining our partner organizations to ask people, companies, governments, and NGOs to “Make the Switch” to strong encryption. We’re hoping this day can encourage people to make the switch to end-to-end encrypted platforms, creating a more secure and private online world. It’s a great time to turn on encryption on all the devices or services you use, or switch to an end-to-end encrypted app for messaging—and talk to others about why you made that choice.
Increasing the use of end-to-end encrypted platforms not only keeps you and the people you love safe from hackers and thieves, but also improves the security of the Internet as a whole. That is why this Global Encryption Day every person, business and organization should make the switch to using strong encryption.
Global Encryption Day is an opportunity to tell governments around the world that protecting and strengthening encryption is crucial to making the Internet safer for their citizens. It will send a message to governments to abandon plans that will weaken encryption, and the Internet as a whole, by granting law enforcement agencies special powers to access your private data on encrypted platforms.
Encryption safeguards the personal security of billions of people and the national security of countries around the world.
However, some governments and organisations are pushing to weaken encryption, which would create a dangerous precedent that compromises the security of billions of people around the world.
The Global Encryption Coalition (GEC) was founded in 2020 by the Center for Democracy & Technology, Global Partners Digital and the Internet Society and now has over 200 members.
