Over the years, I’ve had my personal information stolen by hackers on more than one occasion. Including: my employer, my bank, 2 credit cards and a major hotel. What comes from these hacks? I’m offered credit monitoring. Not much of a punishment for security failures.
ABC News interviewed Tim Cook, Apple CEO. The interview was to answer to the FBI’s request for Apple to develop the code to hack into a terrorist’s iPhone. But, as Mr. Cook pointed out, it’s not about one iPhone.
Such software would create a vulnerability to the iPhone, putting millions of people at risk.
This case will end up in the Supreme Court. Until then, our phone data is secure.
Here’s a clip from the interview.
