Jul 17, 2008 (08:07 AM EDT)

MILPITAS, Calif., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- SS8 (SS8 Networks, Inc.), a global leader of lawful intercept solutions for telecommunication service providers, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, further extends its drive to demystify the ambiguous topic of lawful intercept by introducing version two of its successful Ready Guide.

The Ready Guide to Intercept Legislation 2 (available for download at ) details 84 pages of intercept legislation from 31 different countries, with specific attention paid to personal privacy issues, responsibilities of carriers, accountability to national law making bodies and cost recovery mechanisms. The result of extensive research into LI legislation around the world, this pocket-sized booklet details the historical context for current worldwide LI statutes, and is designed to serve as a valuable reference for anybody connected with the surveillance industry.

"The original Ready Guide was created to shed some light and clarity on global interception legislation and has been very popular," says Scott Coleman, SS8's Director of Marketing for Lawful Intercept. "With the Ready Guide 2.0, we wanted to continue our efforts. Folks who download the guide will have a handy tool to help them better understand how LI is governed and implemented around the world."

The release of the Ready Guide 2.0 comes at a time when worldwide legislative bodies are hard at work trying to decipher the intricacies of lawful interception. Just last week President Bush signed a bill that overhauls rules about government eavesdropping and grants immunity to telecommunications companies that helped the U.S. investigate people involved in suspected terrorism cases. "The process never stops," comments Coleman. "LI legislation and the standards it drives are fluid and evolving. It's critical for suppliers and service providers alike to understand the laws and their obligations."
