Blackberry CEO says tech firms should comply with lawful access requests

Tech companies should comply with lawful requests to access protected data, BlackBerry Chief Executive John Chen said on Monday, in thinly veiled criticism of rival Apple Inc for its recent standoff with the FBI. Chen made the comment in a blog posting after reports by Vice and Motherboard last week that threw a spotlight on a 2014 case in which Canadian law enforcement authorities used intercepted messages between some BlackBerry devices to unravel an organized crime network. The devices were consumer phones that were not protected by BlackBerry’s BES server, which helps secure any devices running within corporate networks.
