Barr pushes Apple for additional help unlocking Pensacola gunman’s iPhone

Declaring a shooting last fall at a Pensacola naval base a
terrorist act, Attorney General William Barr struck a familiar chord – pressing
Apple for help unlocking iPhones associated with the investigation of the
incident.

Barr assailed the phone maker for not having “given any substantive assistance” as authorities try to obtain data on two damaged phones – one of which appeared to have been deliberately shot – owned by a Saudi airman being trained at the Naval Air Station.

But Apple took issue with Barr’s rebuke, noting it had aided investigators.

“We reject the characterization that Apple has not provided substantive assistance in the Pensacola investigation,” the company said in a statement, according to CBS News.

“Our
responses to their many requests since the attack have been timely, thorough
and are ongoing,” the Apple said, noting it had found about the second
iPhone only recently. “We are continuing to work with the FBI, and our
engineering teams recently had a call to provide additional technical
assistance.” 

In 2016 the tech company butted heads with the government
over a locked iPhone used by a gunman in a mass
shooting in San Bernardino, Calif
. Apple stuck to its guns and prepared to
meet the Justice Department in court but the government pulled out at the last
minute, after it was able to access the phone’s contents through a third party.

“Like four
years ago, the government’s demand would weaken the security of millions of
iPhones, and is dangerous and unconstitutional. Strong encryption
enables religious minorities facing genocide, like the Uyghurs in China, and
journalists investigating powerful drug cartels in Mexico, to communicate
safely with each other, knowledgeable sources, and the outside world,” ACLU
Surveillance and Cybersecurity Counsel Jennifer Granick said in a statement. “There
is simply no way for Apple, or any other company, to provide the FBI access to
encrypted communications without also providing it to authoritarian foreign
governments and weakening our defenses against criminals and hackers.”

The Cyber Security Hub ran the Global Summit where lessons learned from the past 12-14 months were shared by every single presenter over the course of three days. There were three prevalent themes- hygiene, humans and automation. On hygiene- time and time again, presenters suggested that it doesn’t matter what you do, it doesn’t matter what you implement and it doesn’t matter how much you know if your hygiene isn’t up to snuff. The other two points dovetail- you can better take care of your humans and avoid burnout if you automate the simple stuff.

Episode Overview:

Cyber Security Consultant for F-Secure, Jason Johnson joins TF7 Radio Host George Rettas to break down the use of Artificial Intelligence in the Cyber Security Industry. Johnson unpacks the practical real world applications of AI being used in the security tools right now, and explains what the risks are in using AI in your security stack. Johnson talks about how organizations can manage and mitigate AI risks, what separates valuable AI products through all the buzz words being tossed around, and even how threat actors are using AI to automate their attacks. All this and much more on Episode #181 of Task Force 7 Radio. Does AI pose a threat to job security, in cybersecurity or in other sectors? How can people get started learning about AI?
