- RIM Refuses To Share BlackBerry Data With Pakistan Authorities
  • RIM Refuses To Share BlackBerry Data With Pakistan Authorities

    The BlackBerry maker RIM, has once again clashed with local authorities over data sharing. The superior security features that help set RIM apart from the rest of the smart phone industry have proved to be too secure for the local governments of some countries.

    This time the Pakistan government is requesting that RIM share communication details between former envoy Husain Haqqani and Mansoor Ijaz. Haqqani was forced to resign after Ijaz made public the alleged memo that sought US help to take out a feared military stronghold in Pakistan after the killing of Osama bin Laden last year.

    RIM informed the Pakistan government that under its privacy policy, BlackBerry data could only be released only if a request was made by parties involved in the communications. RIM told the Pakistan government that it would not provide data to any third parties. RIM is notorious for its clashes with local government as its been in this situation a few times before. Holding on to security and end user privacy is something that RIM has taken pride in.
