European Commission Directs Staff to Switch to Encrypted Messaging App, Signal

The Infinite Brief
The European Commission has told its staff to switch to the encrypted Signal messaging app.

Signal will not be used for all communication. Encrypted emails will be used to send non-classified but sensitive information, and classified documents use tighter security measures still.

Signal is intended to be used for external communications between staff and people outside the organization.

The initiative comes as the EU is attempting to lock down the security of its communications in the wake of high-profile hacks.
