FBI Director James Comey on Monday upped his campaign against Apple and Google’s new customer data encryption, and implied the companies’ new policies of locking law enforcement out constituted “acting above the law.”
“There should be no one in the United States above the law and… also no places within the United States that are beyond the law,” Comey said while calling for a renewed debate on privacy and security at the “Today’s Terrorism: Today’s Counterterrorism” conference at The Center on National Security at Fordham Law School in New York, Yahoo reports.
“I don’t want to tell people what to do, but I want to try to foster a national conversation about this,” Comey said, according to Mashable. “There has to be some solution that will allow us with lawful authority to be able to have the company unlock the device.”
