Apple Hires Former Navy/NSA Expert as Head of Information Security
Apple has reportedly hired former Navy and NSA expert, David Rice, as the company’s global head of information security. Rice is the author of Geekonomics (2007) about the danger posed to US infrastructure by unpatched vulnerabilities. It’s rumored that Rice has been tapped to help Apple push further into the enterprise market (particularly iPhones and iPads), where security is becoming an increasing concern. Although Apple hasn’t formally commented on this position, Rice is expected to start work in March.
