FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said the bureau plans to engage the public in an adult conversation about the impending collision between electronic privacy and national security — an issue as prominent in healthcare as perhaps any other industry today.
Americans should have a reasonable expectation of privacy in houses, cars and electronic devices, Comey said, but that doesn’t mean it’s an absolute right.
“With good reason, the people of the United States — through judges and law enforcement — can invade our public spaces,” Comey said, explaining that the bargain has been an essential fabric of the country since its founding.
