    "Crypto Wars: The Legal Menace” – an unstoppable GDPR force meets an immovable national security object

    The direction of travel for cyber security controls is clearly signposted by the Network and Information Security Directive (NISD), the General Data Protection regulation (GDPR) and other new global standards. 

    Meanwhile, a Crypto War is raging that has its genesis at the end of the Second World War and the surveillance elements of the Cold War. Attempts to fetter the ability of individuals and companies to use encryption methods are frequently being played out on the world stage.

    The collision is imminent. The law is ready to pierce us on the horns of a dilemma. How have we got here and what happens next?
