Digital Society raises complaint against data traffic monitoring

Thursday 31 August 2017 | 15:23 CET | News
The Act on Intelligence Services (NDG) shall enter into force in Switzerland from 1 September. This means Swisscom, UPC Switzerland and other operators will be obliged to provide information on internet traffic, including content, to the intelligence services for monitoring. Digital Society, an organisation dealing with personal data protection, is raising a complaint against the new act, saying the law represents mass surveillance of citizens, making a suspect of anyone using a telephone or internet.
