Europol: First Report on Encryption Published

A new report by the EU Innovation Hub for Internal Security looks into how to uphold citizens’ privacy while enabling criminal investigation and prosecution.

Encryption represents an important means of securing private communications. However, at the same time, it also enables threat actors to manage their malicious activities below the radar of law enforcement. Understanding the needs and challenges of stakeholders in the Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) community is the foundation of adopting the necessary measures to keep Europe safe, while safeguarding fundamental rights.
