John Chen discusses privacy, security and BlackBerry's hardware business

If there is anything we've learned about John Chen in the 18 months since his joining BlackBerry as CEO, it's that he has a plan, and it's a plan he's sticking to it. Granted, not everyone might agree with that plan or believe that it will turn out in his favor, but it's a plan nonetheless. A new interview with Maria Bartiromo appearing on USA Today sees BlackBerry CEO John Chen lay out the details of that plan once again while discussing the topics of privacy, security, BlackBerry's hardware business and more.

May 25, 2015 From the Editor's Desk: BlackBerry takeover rumors, layoffs and Losing the Signal

BlackBerry Sign

I know. It has been a while since I've written a 'From the Editor's Desk' post and I should probably write more of them, but to be honest I really need to feel pretty strongly about something in order to write them and the past few days have me a little fired up. With that out of the way, the past three days have been interesting for the BlackBerry world, made even more so when you consider the timing of everything, and some of it has me fired up.

We've had a few new takeover rumors and BlackBerry has confirmed an unspecified number of layoffs along with a new common share purchase program. If that's not enough, there were some rumblings about the possibility of BlackBerry using Samsung's Exynos processors for some of their next-gen smartphones and to add even more to the mix there's a new and dramatically titled book coming out about the "rise and fall of BlackBerry", though that story is still ongoing.

BlackBerry will make money on phones again one day

Tell me if you've heard this question before. Why is BlackBerry still making phones? You've heard it before, right? Of course, you have. Every blog, media outlet and armchair CEO that questions how BlackBerry is still alive resorts to asking that same tired question though they never provide an answer to it because an answer can only come from the top. Right now, the top is BlackBerry CEO John Chen and a new interview with Business Insider sheds some light on why exactly BlackBerry keeps on building phones once again.

BlackBerry Chief Security Officer David Kleidermacher

Despite having joined the company back in February, we've not heard a lot about what BlackBerry Chief Security Officer David Kleidermacher is working on at BlackBerry. As we know from the announcement of his arrival, his main focus, according to BlackBerry CEO John Chen, is to 'help extend BlackBerry's gold standard of security as we work with customers to meet new cybersecurity challenges' and more specifically, 'securing the Internet of Things and embedded systems'.

That's the company quote of what Kleidermacher does and why he's at BlackBerry but a new interview with the man himself from German site Elektronik Praxis sheds some light on his daily activities and where he sees BlackBerry in the context of embedded systems and IoT.

John Chen speaks out against Shafiq Qaadri, the Ontario MPP, who wants legislature to drop its BlackBerry-only policy

Last week, Etobicoke North MPP Shafiq Qaadri, introduced a petition asking the Ontario legislature to allow members and staff to use a variety of smartphones instead of sticking to the BlackBerry-only policy but did so in a rather terrible way. Qaadri called the assembly's policy "handicapping, retarding and penalizing MPPs" to which many, including, Kitchener-Conestoga MPP Michael Harris found highly offensive not only for the language used but also the 'anti-BlackBerry' sentiment behind it as noted by The Record.
