Cybersecurity experts raise serious concerns about Microsoft's Ukraine war analysis. Zuckerberg dodges employee questions about post-Roe data collection. And reproductive privacy goes far beyond deleting period trackers. This is CyberScoop for July 1.

Skeptics say Microsoft went too far pushing commercial interests

Prominent cybersecurity experts questioned a recent Microsoft report "Defending Ukraine," saying the study released last week makes claims it doesn't support with data. Critics point to a story about a combined cyber and battlefield assault on a nuclear power plant as particularly imprecise and problematic. Microsoft said it stands by its report, noting that cybersecurity issues are "pervasive across the digital landscape, extending beyond the security community to key audiences including policymakers and others not always steeped in technical details."

Exclusive: Zuckerberg touts encryption in response to Roe concerns in employee meeting

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg dodged employee concerns about the company's collection of abortion-related data by saying that its encrypted technologies will help guard against excessive law enforcement requests. "I think in this case having your messages encrypted is actually one of the ways that you keep people safe from bad behavior or, or over-broad requests for information or things like that," he said at a company meeting Thursday. Meta plans to fully roll out end-to-end encryption for its services by sometime in 2023, though its not clear how that will apply to data collected by its expansive advertising business. Facebook declined to elaborate on the comments to CyberScoop. Other major tech companies including Amazon, Google and Apple have also been silent on how they'll deal with new law enforcement requests related to abortion charges. Lawmakers and privacy advocates are pressing the companies to collect less data in the first place. Tonya Riley has more.


Are period trackers a real threat?

Viral warnings to delete your period tracker in response to a post-Roe America may be distracting from larger security concerns like hospitals sharing information, experts say. Of the known abortion-related cases that relied on digital evidence, none relied on data from period-tracking apps. Instead, individuals should be taking steps to protect their private communications with encryption and being careful who they share information with. The issue of how to protect reproductive health data is not just an individual one, of course. Policymakers have had to grapple in the aftermath of the Roe reversal with how to deal with concerns over reproductive data. Tonya Riley explores.
