MetroStar Systems’ Director of Cybersecurity, Clay Calvert discussed the implications of the Apple vs. FBI debate with Inc.com.

“It will be extremely difficult to have a solution where only law enforcement can extract encrypted data on a smartphone,” adds Clay Calvert from MetroStar Systems. “If a ‘back door’ exists then it is only a matter of time before someone figures out how to take advantage of that opening. It is also a major concern that if such an opening is available for U.S. law enforcement then other countries would want and demand the same access.”
