NEW YORK (AP) — FBI Director James Comey said government and the tech industry need to sort out their differences over encryption before “something terrible happens” that would make productive conversations impossible.
Acknowledging that talks will probably have to wait until after a new president takes office next year, Comey said that it’s up to the American people — not the FBI or the tech companies — to decide how to resolve the issue. But before making that decision, people need to understand the cost of absolute privacy.
