FBI director pleads with Silicon Valley for access to encrypted data
FBI Director James Comey continued his push for Silicon Valley to give the federal government backdoor access to encrypted data at a congressional hearing. However, the tech industry has told committee members that it’s not in their interest to help.
At a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday, Comey said that he wants Silicon Valley to create a workaround that would give the federal government access to encrypted data in their programs and hardware, even though more than 140 tech firms have come out against the idea.
“There shouldn’t be venom,” Comey told the committee. “We should all care about the same thing.”
