Apple is struggling to protect its trade secrets. For this, it will use body cams at its workplaces. These body cams are said to be police-grade quality-wise. This practice is being followed for at least the past few weeks.
Apple’s attempt to stop information leaks got also leaked from the company. In this interesting move, this tech giant makes it mandatory for its some employees to weak “police-grade body cams to stop trade leaks.
Being so ironic, the step by Apple is a serious one. The new move complies with the company’s recent crackdown on information leaks, including warnings to famous tipsters known for leaking information around Apple products.
Apple intends to protect its trade secrets from leaking out in the industry. The new step by Apple, which is unique, has been made public in a report by Front Page Tech. The report reveals that Apple has been making its employees wear body cameras for at least the last few weeks.
It also mentions that the body cameras are police-grade in quality and resembles those used by law enforcement agencies. It highlights the body camera to be closely resembling the Axon Body 2, “if not the same.”
However, only some employees in specific teams are being made to wear the body cameras. Perhaps these specific teams are in charge of Apple’s trade secrets.
Well, it is not clear that how a body camera would help stop such leaks from within the workplace. Maybe this move would be helpful to prevent any photography or theft of documents from within the workplace. We have also seen many under-production units being leaked out of the Apple campuses. Body cameras can help stop such leaks.
Besides, the body cameras might not essentially be of too much help. An insider can verbally share anything important he knows. Even there would be no proof for it without the hard evidence.
Apple is trying hard to keep working secretly. It seeks to protect its secrets unless it is the right time for a public reveal, and such leaks are hurting its plans. But, it might not be helpful unless it convinces its employees to stop sharing insider information with others.
