On December 8, 2015, Lecturer Ming Chow was quoted in a CNN Money article about the potential creation of a special commission to review encryption. Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said he wants a commission to review how terrorists are empowered by technology.
“Politicians have little knowledge of tech and encryption. Technologists have little understanding of policy,” said Chow. “Want to get it right? Every stakeholder needs to be sitting at the same table. The consequences of not getting it right is that no one wins.”
