Digital Dave might have jetted off to the US to try and sign up his bro Obama to his crusade to outlaw encrypted communications, but it seems that the PM hasn’t been reading his Government’s own policy.

A key objective of The Cabinet Office’s UK Cyber Security Strategy (updated in December) is to “to help shape an open, vibrant and stable cyberspace that supports open societies” by ensuring “members of the public know what they can do to protect themselves, and are demanding good cyber security in the products and services they consume”. IE using encryption…

In fact the Home Office funded CyberStreetWise blog advises people to use encrypted websites when buying and selling online.

“It’s always best to use a major site which will use ‘https://’, this means they protect the information you send across their website. It’s easy to spot too, just look for ‘https://’ at the beginning of the web address and a little green padlock at the top of your browser.”

It’s almost as if the PM doesn’t know what he’s talking about…
