Guardian - Edward Snowden urges professionals to encrypt client communications - video interview

The Guardian's Alan Rusbridger gets another Snowden scoop by interviewing him in Moscow - man, this is just like The Real Spy Game or some other book written by Robert Ludlum twenty years before its time.
The NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, has urged lawyers, journalists, doctors, accountants, priests and others with a duty to protect confidentiality to upgrade security in the wake of the spy surveillance revelations.

Snowden said professionals were failing in their obligations to their clients, sources, patients and parishioners in what he described as a new and challenging world.

"What last year's revelations showed us was irrefutable evidence that unencrypted communications on the internet are no longer safe. Any communications should be encrypted by default," he said. [source GUARDIAN]
