A new post (written in German) on the blog Digitalisierung jetzt! answers two important questions: why is encryption important and what still needs to be done in this area? This article, which was published in the pamphlet IT-Sicherheit für Politiker before, was written by cryptovision’s Chief Editor Marketing, Klaus Schmeh. Among other things, Klaus reports on a theft of a laptop with unencrypted data, which caused a damage of about 500 million US Dollars. As another important question, he addresses crypto backdoors for the government – and rejects them. This article is definitely worth reading!
