Apple and Meta: Evaluating the Challenges of Safeguarding Customer Personal Information

Abstract

In 2021, hackers pretending to be official law enforcement tricked Apple and Meta into giving out their clients' personal information. They forged legal emergency requests for personal data that do not require a court order. This case delves into the flaws of Apple and Meta’s cybersecurity standards and how they jeopardized the safety of their customers by giving out private and sensitive personal information. Students are asked to evaluate the importance of stricter security protocols, especially for large data companies like Meta and Apple, and how these organizations can get better at protecting personal information.
