Apple Asserts Privacy Threats Under New UK Snooping Bill

A useful Article for those wanting to comprehend the scope of the govts proposals.

Apple has raised concerns about the UK's draft Investigatory Powers Bill. The proposed law aims to overhaul rules governing the way the authorities can access people's communications.
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation.
It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants.
The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. Monday was the final deadline for written evidence to be received by the committee scrutinising the draft legislation. It is expected to report in February 2016.

Many Govts are seemingly blind when it comes to security of data, they want the ability to be able to spy on anyone at anytime upon demand but forget that disgruntled former employees and professional attackers (state sponsored level) mean such an ability can be made available to anyone in the future thus destroying the whole security model many financial organisations utilise to safeguard transactions, short sighted demands for data access are a genuine threat to all citizens not just those using a messaging platform to plan a warped jihad, security and privacy are something the citizen must defend at every juncture or they lose their freedoms often paid for in blood in times gone by, its that simple.
