"But you talk to any external security researcher, they're probably not going to have a lot of great things to say about Apple. Whereas if you talk to security researchers in dealing with, say, Microsoft, they've said: 'We're gonna put our ego aside, and ultimately realise that the security researchers are reporting vulnerabilities that at the end of the day are benefiting our users, because we're able to patch them.' I don't think Apple has that same mindset

Apple has a bug bounty program. This dude is blowing smoke and microsoft at the same time.

The two biggest corporate hacks in history involved the Windows OS via Solarwinds software and Microsoft's own Exchange. And let's not forget PrintNightmare, EternalBlue and countless other mindblowing holes from intern-quality coding.

/did you guys know information security is really just enterprise risk management with extra steps? I don't recommend it.

Apple is trying. But a big problem is the defense problem. The offense only needs to win once. The defense had to win every time.

Compare to everyone else, who is "we want all your data anyway so who cares?"

Both Apple and Android are vulnerable to military-grade spyware?

"Has a bug bounty program" is not the same as "is open and communicative about bugs".
