On Tuesday, a federal judge in Riverside, California, ordered Apple to help the government unlock and decrypt the iPhone 5C used by Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the alleged San Bernardino attackers.
Specifically, the government has compelled a technology company to 'assist' law enforcement by designing custom software that would disable security features on the phone to allow FBI access - and the ramifications of such a precedent could be tremendous.
Technology, social justice and legal partners have come together to deliver a phone briefing on this ruling that helps social justice activists, technologists and others better understand what has happened, what it means, what will happen next, and what we can do.
