美國科技大佬和FBI共謀的這件事,讓人細思極恐

還記得“通俄門”嗎?

在2016年美國大選時,就有一批人堅信,俄羅斯干預了美國大選。

一些人懷疑俄羅斯在美國總統大選期間購買了數千份廣告投放社交媒體,干預總統大選。

2020年大選在即,臉書、谷歌、微軟和推特週三與美國政府官員舉行了一場會談,防止歷史重演。美國各大主流媒體都大篇幅報道此事。

 

 

 

 

 

 

The meeting took place at the Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, the people said. Agencies in attendance included the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

相關人士透露,會談在加利福尼亞州門洛帕克的Facebook總部舉行。出席會議的機構包括聯邦調查局,國土安全部和國家情報局局長辦公室。

According to Reuters, Facebook said the companies and government agencies were working together to develop strategies to block previous weaknesses and avoid future threats with the first primary just five months away.

據路透社報道,Facebook 稱這些科技公司和政府機構正在共同制定戰略,查漏補缺,以免使五個月後的初選受到被操縱的風險。

爲了防止歷史重演,科技大佬們紛紛保證“清理門戶”。

Since then, many of the tech companies have been under scrutiny. Some have said they can do better and have made internal changes to reduce disinformation and foreign interference.

從那時起,許多科技公司都受到了嚴格的審查。一些公司表示可以做得更好,並作出內部整改,以減少虛假信息和外部勢力的干擾。

Last week, for example, Facebook said it was strengthening how it verified which groups and people place political advertising on its site. And Twitter said last month that it would bar state-backed media from promoting tweets on its service.

例如,上週,Facebook表示正在加強覈實是哪些羣體和人們在其網站上投放政治廣告。Twitter上個月表示,它將禁止國有媒體購買廣告。

在會後,科技巨頭紛紛表態,支持美國政府維護2020年大選不受外國勢力干擾。

 

 

“We always welcome the opportunity to spend time with our peer companies and the government agencies tasked with protecting the integrity of the 2020 election,” a Twitter spokesman told CNBC in a statement. “This is a joint effort in response to a shared threat, and we are committed to doing our part.”

Twitter發言人在一份聲明中告訴CNBC,“我們一直歡迎和同行以及政府機構共同維護2020年大選的公正透明的機會。”“這是我們面對外部威脅的共同努力,我們致力於儘自己的一份力。”

Google is investing in systems to detect phishing and hacking attempts, identify foreign interference on its platforms and protect candidates’ campaigns from digital attacks, said Richard Salgado, Google’s director of law enforcement and information security.

谷歌執法和信息安全總監Richard Salgado表示,谷歌正在投資升級系統,以檢測釣魚網站和黑客攻擊,識別其平臺上外國勢力的干擾,保護候選人的選舉活動免受網絡攻擊。

“Improving election security and countering information operations are complex challenges that no organization can solve alone,” Nathaniel Gleicher, head of Facebook cybersecurity policy, said in a statement. “Today’s meeting builds on our continuing commitment to work with industry and government partners, as well as with civil society and security experts, to better understand emerging threats and prepare for future elections.”

“提高選舉安全性和反擊信息操控是一項複雜的挑戰,任何組織都無法獨自解決,”Facebook網絡安全政策負責人Nathaniel Gleicher在一份聲明中表示。“今天的會議建立了我們和同行、政府、以及民間社會和安全專家合作的基礎,以便更好地瞭解新出現的威脅併爲未來的選舉做好準備。”

但是也有專家指出這種科技大佬和政府機構的會議細思極恐

 

 

Joan Donovan, a research director at Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center, said the public should also be wary of such meetings between government agencies and tech giants for privacy reasons.

哈佛大學Shorenstein中心的研究主任Joan Donovan表示,出於保護隱私的原因,公衆也應該警惕政府機構和科技巨頭之間的此類會議。

“We don’t know where the lines are drawn internally,” she said. “We don’t know whether the tech companies would consider your inbox or direct messages subject to sharing with the state.”

“沒人知道底線在哪裏,”她說。“我們不知道科技公司是否會把你收件箱或郵件的內容透露給政府。”
