After the referendum on the intelligence bill, the Dutch government amended the law by reducing the storage period of dat
a and some other measures that the people ‘asked’ for. At the same time intentions were announced by experts to look for ways to protect companies from DDoS-attacks. A noble gesture or a way to bypass the law?
