With a broad perspective
The cabinet should widen its perspective, is what the advice boils down to. Do not focus solely on the authority to tap phone and internet traffic, the council claims. That investigative tool is no longer as effective, but there are plenty of alternatives. The cabinet should instead focus on the totality of available information and privileges, and use these to the full. This is also what we have been saying for a while. Encryption was made possible through technical developments. These very same developments are responsible for the wholesale and detailed recordings of our daily lives. This makes the job of investigative institutions and secret services often a lot easier. And although it is not an identical alternative, it should be evaluated in the discussion and deliberations.
