Hacking Safeguard 8 Oversight and Transparency

Government authorities must be transparent about the scope and use of their hacking powers and activities, and subject those powers and activities to independent oversight. They should regularly publish, at a minimum, information on the number of applications to authorise hacking approved and rejected; the identity of the applying government authorities; the offences specified in the applications; and the method, extent and duration of authorised hacking measures, including the specific configurations of target systems.
