In addition to announcing their Security Credential Management System today, BlackBerry CEO John Chen took part in a fireside chat at the Toronto Global Forum to discuss data, privacy, and governance in the era of big tech.

In a follow-up video, Bloomberg's Amanda Lang laid out some additional questions for Chen surrounding how consumers and Governments feel about security, how BlackBerry can help secure 5G networks, and addressing concerns with working with China.

As expected, a large portion of the fireside chat focused on how BlackBerry handles security and privacy compared to other organizations out Chen noting BlackBerry doesn't use the data. "Everything we do, from encrypting your messages to delivering it, storing it, we never use your data, unlike a lot of different companies that unfortunately had a lot of higher market caps."
