Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The novel coronavirus pandemic is not only causing deaths globally, damaging economies and disrupting normal lifestyles of people, but also posing several legal challenges. Aggressive and intrusive contact-tracing mechanisms of governments worldwide during this acute public health emergency are causing certain privacy concerns among civil liberties defenders. The collection and sharing of biomedical data is necessary for containing the infectious diseases to identify point of contact. The pandemic has further escalated the need for collecting & sharing data, as well as for tracking  movements of individuals. For instance, China’s Government used CCTV footage to retrace interactions among disease carriers. Alipay Health Code System in China automatically assigns each user a color-coded infectious threat level. South Korea used credit card transactions as information for the same. The Israeli Government disclosed the existence of a large cache of cellphone data to track the movements and social contacts of infected people.

Top Impacting Factors

Rise In Number Of Criminal Activities

The necessity for technologically sophisticated crime detection technologies and favourable lawful interception legislation has grown as the number of criminal and terrorist activities throughout the world have increased. Law enforcement and intelligence organisations employ lawful interception to study suspects' communication data to combat and control crimes such as terrorism, domestic crimes, and cybercrime.

Network operators and service providers transfer the suspect's intercepted data to intelligence agencies and further, the legal authority issues a warrant. To track and monitor illegal actions, the monitoring centres evaluate forensic telecommunication data collected from service providers (SPs) and internet service providers (ISPs) to extract general information for law enforcement authorities regarding the suspect's groups, activities, and associations. 

Rise In Volume Of Data Traffic And Security Threats

Communication channel traffic has increased at an exponential rate. The expansion of data traffic will be fueled by increasing use of smartphones, particularly in Asian countries. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is now able to allow voice calls in offices. Individual consumers prefer data-based services to traditional phone or mobile voice calls for communication. The exponential expansion in packet data volume has resulted in an increase in the frequency of cybercrimes and data breaches. To protect national security, the government and other organisations use cyber data interception. As a result, increase in data traffic and security concerns are two main drivers propelling the lawful interception market industry.

Lawful interception is a strong security tool for combating crime and upholding the rule of law. In nations without set interception standards, the government and other regulatory authorities might utilize interceptions to spy on its inhabitants, which would be a breach of privacy. Network operators are not compelled to conduct legitimate interception for law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in nations, where no laws for lawful interception have been created. Local operators, on the other hand, would be forced to do so by the ruling government's influence and authority. As a result, it is critical to put in place legal Lawful interception practices everywhere across the globe.

The key providers of lawful interception market such as Utimaco GmbH, SS8 Networks Inc., and FireEye account for a significant share in the market. With larger requirement for lawful interception, various companies are partnering to improve the surveillance industry. For instance, in August 2021, IT security solution provider, Utimaco and achelos GmbH, a manufacturer-independent software development and consulting firm, have further extended their longstanding cooperation with a partnership contract. Accordingly, achelos GmbH is now marketing all products and solutions from the Utimaco portfolio as a value-added reseller. The partnership helped Utimaco to implement their own customer-specific development projects for HSM firmware, develop solutions based on this and act as a value-added reseller for Utimaco's HSM.

In addition, with increase in demand for lawful interception services, various organizations are expanding their current services to meet the rising demand. For instance, in September 2020, BAE Systems, a leading provider of Lawful Intercept (LI) solutions ,globally, developed world’s first standards based 5G Stand Alone Lawful Interception solution. Lawful interception solutions enable CSPs to share communications data for investigatory purposes, which is vital to law enforcement and national security agencies. Regulated by law, interception data forms a key element in national efforts to monitor threats, detect & deter crimes, and investigate & prosecute criminals. Online and connected devices are slated to take a giant leap with 5G, increasing the risk of cybercrime and exploitation of new technology by criminals.

The CXOs further added that market players are expanding their business operations and customers by increasing their acquisition. For instance, in June 2021, SS8 Networks, a leader in lawful intercept and monitoring center platforms, announced an agreement to acquire the assets of Bivio Networks, Inc. Bivio is a developer of innovative, high-performance network security platforms for federal and commercial network operators. The investment represents SS8’s ongoing commitment to rapidly innovate their Xcipio family of products. The acquisition will help implementation of Bivio’s OS into Xcipio’s sensor and mediation platform, which will significantly enhance the scalability and increase the number of applications that can be managed. The result will be a mediation and interception platform that delivers promising performance and flexibility.
