Lawful Interception, Data Retention and the Fight against Terror – What Lies Ahead?

A comment by Alexander Michael, Director of Consulting, Digital Transformation, Frost & Sullivan

"Practically all countries already allow lawful interception to aid intelligence gathering. Of course, interception capabilities should expand to over-the-top (OTT) services and applications such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Skype, peer-to-peer networks, instant messaging and VoIP applications", noted Alexander Michael. "Unfortunately, a single country cannot legislate to make this happen. Perpetrators use a variety of sophisticated, encrypted communication channels that rely on infrastructure deployed in the cloud and located outside the jurisdiction of a single country. Services may be provided across jurisdictions, and data may roam between data centres in different jurisdictions as well."
