Watch Apple and the FBI testify to Congress on encryption

As previously reported, representatives from both Apple and the FBI are preparing to testify to the House Judiciary Committee on the matter of encryption. This follows clashes between the two over the FBI's desire to get Apple to help unlock the phone of one of the San Bernardino shooters. The hearing is set to begin at around 1:00 p.m. EST, and you can watch it live on the Judiciary Committee's YouTube page.:

Titled "The Encryption Tightrope: Balancing American's Security and Privacy," the hearing will consist of two panels. The first will feature FBI Director James Comey as its witness, while the second panel will consist of Apple's Bruce Sewell, along with Worcester Polytechnic Institute professor Susan Landau, and New York County District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. Sewell's opening statement was released ahead of time.
