Apple: 12 People Were Arrested for Leaks in 2017

Whether the memo cuts down on leaks remains to be seen. Today, something similar happened to Apple.

The memo obtained by Bloomberg cites specific examples of people the company caught, including an employee who leaked information about the company's plans from an internal meeting.

The company actually had twelve of them arrested, which sounds pretty serious if you ask me. Recently a memo was leaked which revealed that Apple employees have been made clear that in such situations, they will be fired and a legal action will be taken against them when possible while there also being blacklisted from other companies.

The full text of the memo can be read over at Bloomberg. 9to5Mac noted that additional leaks suggested the third color was killed off because Apple couldn't attain the yields necessary for release. These AppleCare employees, who typically work remotely to offer tech support, have been deployed in Apple Stores as in-house support for working through the backlog of iPhone battery replacements. Hundreds of software engineers were in attendance, and thousands more within the organization received details of its proceedings. Last year, Trump yet to make 'final decision' on Syria strike
Last year , 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles targeted Syrian warplanes suspected of carrying out the chemical assault. Over the next year, a civil war with hundreds of factions formed in rebellion.

Apple has always cultivated a culture of confidentially about its work, as a means of maintaining a competitive advantage over the competition.

In addition to not-so-subtly threatening its own employees with arrest, Apple warns them of fake friends in the press. Global Security has worked hand-in-hand with suppliers to prevent theft of Apple's intellectual property as well as to identify individuals who try to exceed their access.

In many cases, leakers don't set out to leak.

The employee who leaked the meeting to a reporter later told Apple investigators that he did it because he thought he wouldn't be discovered.

"If you put a genuine Apple replacement display into an iPhone 8, 8 Plus or X, it'll no longer be able to adjust its brightness automatically", reports Engadget after speaking to repairers. They also state that once a leaker is fired, Apple will try hard to make finding employment elsewhere almost impossible.
