Comey Renews the Debate Over Encryption Bypass

A report on FBI Director James Comey seeking to reopen the debate over creating for law enforcement a bypass to encryption on mobile devices is among the stories featured in the latest ISMG Security Report.

The Security Report opens with a segment featuring DataBreachToday Executive Editor Mathew J. Schwartz, who explains how four security flaws pose a risk to nearly 900 million Android mobile devices.

In this report, you'll also hear:

  • ISMG Managing Editor for Security and Technology Jeremy Kirk on how a group of churchgoing family men are driving business email compromise scams; and
  • Why U.S. Marshals will auction off $1.6 million worth of bitcoins.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Tuesdays and Fridays. Be sure to check out our Aug. 2 and Aug. 5 reports, which respectively analyze why IT security practitioners act more like "witch doctors" than scientists and the United States electoral system should be designated as critical infrastructure. The next ISMG Security Report will be posted Friday, Aug. 12.
