Guess who leaks the iPhones? The answer is Apple
Gossip about Apple products is an important part of the tech world’s agenda. This brings along the fact that the leaks of the company’s products are being watched with all four eyes. Even though Apple has taken some steps to prevent leakage in order to protect the mystery of its future products, it seems that it has not yet addressed this problem. The fact that the presentation for the prevention of leaks has leaked to the internete proves this.
Details of the presentation by Apple, entitled “Stopping Leaks – Keeping a Secret in Apple,” organized by the company, about 1 hour long, was published by The Outline. The 100 employees attended the presentation by three members of Apple’s Global Security team. Global security director David Rice, global investigative director Lee Freedman, and Jenny Hubbert, Global Security communications and education team, have told Apple employees about leakage prevention.
The presentation provided information about Apple’s products, from audiences to competitors and from the press. The Apple Global Security team, where duty definitions are minimized, includes names previously held by the NSA, the US Army, the FBI and the US Secret Service.
Speaking about the way in which people work in assembling the devices, Rice pointed out that between these methods, you would send the piece down from the closet and then take it out of the sewer, or throw the piece over the wires around the factory. One of the most interesting events in Rice’s theft methods is the removal of a woman’s bra strap to play 8 thousand boxes.
It was stated that the employees at the production plants were attracted to earn the money they could earn in a few months. Rice said that in some cases, even a year’s worth of profits were being offered to employees to do piece theft. According to a report published by China Labor Watch last year, workers in the production of the company’s products in China earn about $ 350 a month.
The most important piece to be stolen is the device casings and boxes. Rice pointed out that Apple purchased 29,000 phone cases in 2013 before the iPhone 5c was introduced so that the product surprise would not escape. Drawing attention to the drop in the rate of hacking, Rice said that only four of Apple’s 65 million device kits produced in the past year were stolen.
The leaked presentation also shows that Apple’s next focus on leak prevention efforts will be California’s campuses. For the first time in 2016, Rice said that more of it has leaked out of their campuses than production centers. The leaking of the presentation to prevent leakage also shows that it is the right decision to turn the focal point to the settlements.
