Box’s Aaron Levie: Cybersecurity Policies Should Be Aligned With the ‘New Digital World’

cybersecurityAaron Levie, CEO and co-founder of cloud storage firm Box, wrote in a column posted Tuesday in The Washington Post that lawmakers should introduce policies on cybersecurity based on the “new digital world.”

Levie’s article is in response to a draft bill on encryption introduced by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

The proposed legislation would require technology firms to help law enforcement authorities in their investigations through the establishment of encryption “backdoors” in their products.

“The collision between legacy laws and our new digital world will continue to resurface until our policy approaches catch up to our technology,” Levie wrote.

“We need legislation that is more attuned to the practical and technical realities of the new digital world and the long-term consequences of the decisions that we are making,” he added.
