Apple Senior Vice President Doesn’t Want FBI Causing Havoc On Personal Information Going Public
The Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi making a case on now wanting the FBI getting information from an iPhone, which can cause havoc worldwide if it goes public.
Most hackers would know how to access information from an iPhone without a passcode. But it can be a risky decision if the FBI allows it. Federighi explains the situation of being ahead of the hackers for security purposes. He believes in one single mistake being a disaster to other iPhones being expose worldwide. It can cause havoc and that’s something they can’t afford to do, even if it’s important information for the FBI.
“[The] threat to our personal information is just the tip of the iceberg. Your phone is more than a personal device,” the exec writes according to BGR. “In today’s mobile, networked world, it’s part of the security perimeter that protects your family and co-workers. Our nation’s vital infrastructure — such as power grids and transportation hubs — becomes more vulnerable when individual devices get hacked. Criminals and terrorists who want to infiltrate systems and disrupt sensitive networks may start their attacks through access to just one person’s smartphone.”
Federighi is working hard to stay ahead of the cyber criminals with the strong software protections. The apple company continues to make security improvements on the iPhones. FBI is going to have to do it in a different way if they believe this information is vital to their case.
