Personal Technology Encryption vs. Homeland Security
Book Description HTML
The more we as a society rely on electronic devices to communicate and store information, the more likely it is that information that was once found in filing cabinets, letters, and photo albums will now be stored only in electronic form. We have seen case after case - from homicides and kidnappings, to drug trafficking, financial fraud, and child exploitation - where critical evidence came from smart phones, computers, and online communications. When changes in technology hinder law enforcement’s ability to exercise investigative tools and follow critical leads, we may not be able to identify and stop terrorists who are using social media to recruit, plan, and execute an attack.
