Sure, and this is not just against citizens on an individual level. It's about structural networks. It's about data minimization at the federal level so that the government does not act as a giant warehouse of information that there's no necessity for it to keep, because when you make yourself a big target like that and a breach eventually occurs, it is much more damaging. For that reason, we need data minimization, strong encryption, and strong security protocols.
Again, to bring it back to the debate about the green paper, data retention protocols and weakening encryption move us in the wrong direction from that perspective.
