Materiality in risks and push back on requests from Authorities

We are working hard on managing our largest CR risks. That is where we put the focus and effort, not as much on less material matters and situations. When it comes to Privacy and Freedom of Expression we have processes in place - since long - on how to manage requests for lawful interception and lawful CDR. Nothing new to that. Yet I have been a bit puzzled, to be frank, about some call to publish statistics on push backs, challenged or rejected requests from Authorities.

If a request is not lawful we cannot, shall not and do not comply. Full stop. Statistics would then show the number of sloppy requests we would receive, without the correct formalia, rather than requests violating human rights.
