Statement On The Reintroduction Of The ENCRYPT Act

Washington, DC – – Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issued the following statement on the reintroduction of the Ensuring National Constitutional Rights for Your Private Telecommunications (ENCRYPT) Act of 2017:

“The internet industry applauds Rep. Ted Lieu, Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Suzan DelBene, and Rep. Mike Bishop for reintroducing the ENCRYPT Act.

Encryption protects our country from countless threats to the financial system, sensitive infrastructure, and individual privacy. The ENCRYPT Act recognizes the importance of encryption to our national security and daily lives.”
