The Digital Markets Act is a security nightmare
In their zeal to curb big tech through the Digital Markets Act, the European legislators are risking the privacy and security of all Europeans. It is time to accept the reality that the measures meant to force big platforms to be more open, will force them to lower their defences and to open the data of Europeans to bad actors. No amount of wishful thinking will change the fact that forced openness is in a tug of war with security. The DMA’s privacy and security provisions do not come close to taking the problem seriously and unreasonably expect the tech companies to solve a new class of risks that the DMA will create.
