Our main story for this episode of the Cyberlaw Podcast is the UK story A new comprehensive internet safety lawwhich regulates social media in several ways. Mark McCarthy He explains some of it, but the biggest surprise is encryption. US encrypted messaging companies have exhausted all the oxygen in the room, fretting over the threat of blanket encryption regulation and boasting of their determination to fight back. As a result, journalists have paid little attention to any other item in the past year or two. And even then, they got it wrong, he claims happily Which the United Kingdom backed down and stripped it of the authority to regulate encrypted applications Bill. Mark and I explain how wrong they are. It was the messaging companies that took a backseat and who they were Now they pretend they won.
In cybersecurity news, David Chris I have good words for the DHS report on how to coordinate Reporting cyber incidents. Unfortunately, there’s a wide gap between writing a good report on incident reporting format and actually, you know, actually formatting incident reporting.

I update listeners on The suit Because of the Biden administration’s pressure on social media companies to ban misinformation and use the story to communicate Cybertoonz’s latest commentary on the issue. I also point out the Commerce Department’s claim that its controls on chip technology have not failed because of their existence There is no evidence that China is capable of making advanced chips “at scale.” But the Commerce Department would say that, right? Finally, in this week’s anti-climate privacy news, I note that the UK has decided, in the wake of the EU ruling, that it also considers US law to be “adequate” for the purposes of transatlantic data transfers.
