How can we stop technical giants, digital giants, like Facebook, for instance? Taking Russian propaganda, feeding it into the American political system, not owning up to it until they're prodded and screamed at. They should have owned up to it during the course of the election. Now, you defended it and the great eloquence in your book standing up with my Apple against the government's attempts to find out what happened in California with the terrorists who killed those people.
So where do you stand on this when a piece of National Security information is kept by Facebook and denied the American public when it's the Russians who are behind?>> First of all, I've>> You've got to, this ball takes a bit of time to get to.>> I know.

Where is the line between our responsibility to protect the privacy of people who store their data with us whether individuals or institutions?

The thing that I look at and say is what I want to do as a CEO and what is expected of people like me as CEOs of companies, is to have a set of principles that we use to draw lines. And then move the courts, because they're not, we are a subject to the laws of the land.
And ultimately when we see an over reach even by a government, we will fight it in the courts.
