Apple has quite a few people that work for the company that are there to stop information from leaking outside of the walls of the company. Some of the employees have worked for United States intelligence agencies, such as the National Security Agency (NSA) and other agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the U.S. Secret Service and of course various branches of the United States Military.Their priority is keeping information from leaking out to the world, but even more specifically, from reaching it’s competition.
The campuses of the factories across the world are now more secure than the Apple campus itself.
“More stuff came out of Apple [campuses] last year than all of our supply chain combined.”
That was a quote from David Rice, Director of Global Security, formerly of the NSA.
The amount of people that go in and out of their factories is unreal!
“In aggregate, we do about 221 million transits a year. For comparison, 223 million is the top level volume for the top 25 theme parks in the world”
One investigation was stated to have taken over THREE YEARS! The investigation focused on ONE person that was suspected of leaking information!
Over the past 4 to 5 years, Apple has decreased the number of parts stolen from 19,000 in 2013, to 387 in 2014, down to 4 in 2016!
