Dit jaar vond de eerste wereldwijde Global Encryption Day plaats.

21 October 2021 was the first ever Global Encryption Day. We’re asking people to Make the Switch to strong encrypted services and defend their right to privacy and security.

Meer hierover op de Global Encryption Day site.

Op deze dag kwamen stakeholders uit meerdere maatschappelijk en private hoeken samen om het te hebben over, en hun commitment te tonen aan, encryptie.

‘Global Encryption Day was an opportunity for businesses, civil society organizations, technologists, and millions of Internet users worldwide to show their communities why encryption matters to all of us.

End-to-end encryption keeps people, their information, and their communications private and secure. It underpins online trust, protects members of vulnerable communities, and safeguards the data of governments, businesses, and everyday citizens from criminals and hostile governments. But in some parts of the world, encryption is under threat

Global Encryption Day helped us all to tell governments around the world that protecting and strengthening encryption is crucial to making the Internet safer for everyone.’

Het hele verhaal is hier te lezen op de ISOC.org site en de site van de Global Encryption Day zelf staat bomvol verdere informatie.

We zijn benieuwd naar feedback van ISOC NL leden over dit initiatief en het onderwerp van end-to-end encryption in het algemeen!
