As part of the consideration at the meeting of the bill adapting our legislation to the RGPD, senators pleaded last night to incorporate in the CNIL law an obligation of encryption "as soon as possible". The government opposed it, to no avail. On the evening of the evening, the senators adopted an amendment aimed at compelling data controllers to encrypt them "whenever possible".
According to Senator François Bonhomme (LR), the idea is to make explicit "the obligation to quantify from end to end whenever possible". Such an encryption, added Esther Benbassa (EELV), "is the only technique to fight effectively against intrusions".
The executive opposes article 32 of the RGPD
