February has been a busy month for digital policy, with yet again many developments unfolding.
We've seen negotiations between the EU and USA on a post-Safe Habour agreements inching closer to a deal with the newly announced 'EU-US privacy shield'; zero-rating services being blocked in India; an encryption/privacy battle between Apple and FBI; and more encryption debates in the UK, to mention just a few. These developments will undoubtedly shape future updates, and are also expected to have an impact on developments in other parts of the world.
