How will a Trump administration tackle the encryption and surveillance policy issues started by Bush and continued with Obama?
“I imagine (Trump) is going to be a guy who is probably going to mandate back doors,” said Hank Thomas, chief operating officer at Strategic Cyber Ventures and a veteran of the National Security Agency. “I don’t think he’s ultimately going to be a friend to privacy, and the fearful side of me says he will get intelligence agencies more involved in domestic law enforcement.”
Just based on how Trump acts, and the bombastic remarks he makes without nary a pause, lead me to the same conclusion as Thomas. I sense a reckoning is coming, and there will be a tough battle between the Trump administration and Silicon Valley.
