What Donald Trump’s election could mean for IT

As Donald Trump becomes the 45th President of the United States, attention is moving to how his policies will perform over his four, maybe eight-year spell in Washington. Trump has never been an IT pro, but what follows are some of the actions we can expect from his presidency.


CYBERSECURITY & ENCRYPTION – With Trump’s victory, it is not clear yet what his administration would do on the issues of cybersecurity and encryption. During the presidential debates, he refused the idea that the attacks against the Democratic National Committee were carried out or mutely accepted by the Russian authority. However, Trump’s cybersecurity plan remains weak. It just demands for an “immediate review of all US cyber defenses and vulnerabilities, including critical infrastructure, by a Cyber Review Team of individuals from the military, law enforcement, and the private sector.”

BROADBAND – Trump’s presidency could drive new changes to Internet service providers regulations. The Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality laws could be reversed or weakened. Two years ago, the then Republican candidate tweeted “Obama’s attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.”

APPLE ISSUE –  Few months ago, Donald Trump sent a message to Cupertino’s CEO Tim Cook during a speech at the University of Virginia: if elected, Apple should start leaving China and making all its devices in the United States. Following Trump election win, Cook claimed “to be confident that Apple’s North Star hasn’t changed” and that they “will move forward together.”
