The future of assistance to law enforcement in an end-to-end encrypted world

ASPI Webinar Launch: The future of assistance to law enforcement in an end-to-end encrypted world

Speakers Tom Uren, Brendan Dowling, Fergus Hanson and Clair Deevy

ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre is delighted to invite you to the online launch of its new report ‘The future of assistance to law enforcement in an end-to-end encrypted world’.

As powerful encryption has become increasingly common, the usefulness of ‘exceptional access’ of private communications to combat crime has been called into question by law enforcement and security officials.

Join report author Tom Uren alongside panellists Brendan Dowling, First Assistant Secretary of the Department of Home Affairs Digital and Policy Division, and Clair Deevy, Director of Public Policy at WhatsApp for a discussion on how encryption has affected assistance to law enforcement, moderated by ASPI's Fergus Hanson.

Panellists will share perspectives on the risks and benefits of some of the options that could be employed by service providers to support law enforcement as end-to-end encryption proliferates.
