TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS
HAVE GONE DARK
Terrorists, drug traffickers, pedophiles, and other criminals have access to advanced technology and are harder to monitor, track, and capture than ever before.
The world’s most dangerous
offenders communicate using technology designed to shield their communications, while government
intelligence and law-enforcement agencies struggle to collect digital evidence and intelligence on their activities.
Due to these ongoing global concerns, the member nations of the Five Eyes (FVEY) intelligence alliance warn that, “The increasing gap between the ability of law enforcement to lawfully access data and their ability to acquire and use the content of that data is a pressing international concern that requires urgent, sustained attention.”
