KPN’s CIO Jaya Baloo wants everyone to “live long, laugh a lot, and encrypt everything.”

Speaking at the International NCSC One Conference at the Hague, Baloo said encryption was essential for protecting the freedom of expression.

Baloo also praised the Blackphone, a secure smartphone designed by Silent Circle that can encrypt voice calls. On April 15, KPN became the first operator in the world to sell the Blackphone in its stores. In the U.S., both the FBI and the NSA have criticized efforts by companies such as Google and Apple to encrypt information on phones, saying it would hinder efforts to catch criminals and terrorists. At the conference, Baloo railed against such efforts.
