BlackBerry Senior VP of Security Talks About NSA Spying – Reiterates "No Backdoors"


BlackBerrys Senior Vice President of BlackBerry Security, Scott Totzke, does not make many public appearances but recently he penned a great article on TheHill. In the article Totzke covers “Cybernomics 101” and the latest NSA and government spying leaks from BlackBerry’s perspective. He shares his experience from his time at BlackBerry and the importance of staying on the cutting edge of encryption. Totzke advocates open standards for security with independent testing to protect data. He points out that current encryption methods are challenged by effective entropy (random number generation) to ensure data is unreadable in transit and other weaknesses. BlackBerry is at the forefront of this with their Certicom acquisition and the industry is constantly trying to develop and redefine encryption.

Totzke goes on to state that:

At BlackBerry, that means we have teams dedicated to the security that is at the core of everything we do. We build our solutions without “backdoors” or compromise.  Trust, but verify; hold your partners accountable to be transparent and prove that they are protecting your information.
