The use of Signal was mainly recommended for communications between staff and people outside the institution. The move to use the application shows that the Commission is working on improving its security policies.
I’m curious of what does the EU use for chats internally. I see an overlap on this going forward: if Signal is more secure than Slack/Teams/whatever… doesn’t internal communications now become the weakest link?
Internal systems do have the additional layer of controlling those that have accounts, but I struggle with my team to keep communications on official channels — I’m sure it’s a common case.
What I’d love would be a federated system akin to Mastodon, where we could run an instance of Signal and control users with accounts on it.
