Having the ability to break into a terrorist’s phone sounds good, but what happens when the FBI’s access to your phone leaves you vulnerable to cyber attacks? In this episode of Digital Detectives, hosts Sharon Nelson and John Simek talk to Nate Cardozo about the FBI’s stance on encryption including their desired ability to access our phones, the First Amendment issues involved, and the implications of the FBI vs Apple San Bernardino confrontation. They also discuss the role of public and policy maker ignorance about technology and encryption in the struggle between the FBI and privacy.

Nate Cardozo is a senior staff attorney on Electronic Frontier Foundation’s civil liberties team where he focuses on cybersecurity policy and defending coders’ rights.
