States mandating

While tech companies generally oppose weakened security standards, federal authorities have warned about a “going dark” phenomenon in which criminal suspects use powerful encryption in their communications so that investigators cannot access a phone’s content, even with a warrant.

The ENCRYPT Act, sponsored by Democratic Representative Ted Lieu and Republican Blake Farenthold, would prevent any state or locality from mandating that a “manufacturer, developer, seller, or provider” design or alter the security of a product so it can be decrypted or surveilled by authorities, according to bill text viewed by Reuters.

But technology companies, privacy advocates and cryptographers say any mandated vulnerability would expose data to hackers and jeopardize the overall integrity of the Internet.

A study from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University released last month, citing some current and former intelligence officials, concluded that fears about encryption are overstated in part because new technologies have given investigators unprecedented means to track suspects.

House of Representatives lawmakers will introduce bipartisan legislation on Wednesday that would prohibit states from requiring tech companies to build encryption weaknesses into their products.Dr First has been at the forefront of electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) since it sent the nation’s first electronic prescription of a controlled substance.As EPCS became legalized nationally, many states are considering mandating the use of EPCS for all controlled substances.Time for Preparation Though it’s hard to know when exactly, most transportation experts expect all states to adopt similar regulations in the near future.However, with the ELD compliance date so near, now is the time for you to contact UTECH.
