Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, is committed to putting as many barriers to leaks as possible. In this situation, a leak on the network and reported by media such as 9To5Mac indicates that Apple’s battle against leakers has just begun.
Tim Cook determined to fight leaks
In this sense, the statement sent to all Apple employees is clear and direct. Apple is attempting to find these people and keep “people who provide sensitive information to third parties are not permitted inside the company.”
They’ll inform employees with the letter sent that they have a difficult task ahead of them, but it isn’t impossible. Apple has enough capacity, both economically and logistically, to pursue these possible leaks and while it is true that it may be a complicated battle to manage, they will use all the necessary resources to fight.
Tim Cook, speaks of the frustration of some employees to see that secrecy is prioritized but end up leaking things among employees. On the other hand, he claims that this frustration is similar to the one he feels whenever he sees something confidential published. Finally, he promises that he will use all of the resources at his disposal to find those who expose this data and ends by thanking them for their effort in keeping this information safe and, above all, for developing technologies like those that will be introduced worldwide next Friday.
It’s quite possible that the company’s search for leakers will continue to be a primary goal in the future years.
