Fighting for privacy: How encryption & data protection laws safeguard your emails.
Even though the German Constitution stresses everybody's Right to Privacy as a fundamental Human Right, German politicians regularly call for new surveillance laws.

Because of the 'hype' created by the authors of EFAIL and by the EFF, this will finally change.

Surveillance Database of Journalists to Be Compiled in the USA. Where Is the Outcry?
Donald Trump is not known for being a friend of the media. Now he seems to be taking up new methods to control unfavorable journalists. The Department of Homeland Security wants to create a database of journalists and bloggers from around the world that can be filtered by location, content and sentiment. While the DHS claims this is standard PR practice, the alarm bells must ring. After all, surveillance is what upcoming autocrats commonly use to undermine democracy.
