08 Jul Kaspersky Seconds Privacy Stand of Google and Apple
Cyber security experts are supporting Google and Apple’s privacy stand, stating that turning over information to police will not help fight terrorism and encrypted data should remain private.
Eugene Kaspersky, founder of Kaspersky Lab turned down Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull’s suggestion that technology companies need to help the police by allowing access to some of their clients’ digital behavior.
At the INTERPOL World Conference in Singapore last week, Kaspersky added that it is impossible to forbid all cryptographic systems since terrorists simple ignore open communications.
Technology giants Google, Facebook, and Apple had previously resisted requests to allow third parties to crack encryption via backdoor tools.
