Encryption fosters trust in online interactions and in legal procedure. We fight to protect it.
Security impacts all Internet users and all Internet service providers. For Internet infrastructure providers, encryption ensures that data flows remain unreadable to unintended recipients such as malicious hackers and government agencies.
Credit cards and personal information leaks due to data breaches regularly make headlines involving compromises that could have been avoided if strong encryption procedures were used.
Additionally, many law enforcement agencies and governments have been pushing for backdoor access to encrypted data, not understanding that built-in security weakness could be exploited by bad actors.
We educate government and businesses on the importance of full, end-to-end encryption and its impact on security and privacy.
