According to cybersecurity experts and even hackers themselves, both Obama’s government emails and Clinton’s private, encrypted email system are secure enough to withstand the attack from foreign powers. For example, Obama carries a specially secured BlackBerry device, which so far has proved safe from cyber spies.
Even the National Security Agency admitted that the president’s BlackBerry has a satisfactory level of security. Recently, the US government had to admit that hackers attacked systems at the Pentagon, the White House and the State Department, but the breach in question related to the lowest-level unclassified email.
Meanwhile, controversy continues to rage over Hillary Clinton using a private email system while serving as the secretary of state. Nicknamed her “home brew” clintonemail.com system, it has sophisticated cyber “shields” to protect Clinton’s emails from prying eyes. The private domain has been used by her to conduct government business for four years, though it is not clear to what extent. Perhaps, now she would not be using this system as much, because it can appear vulnerable to some kind of hack, although it has still not been knocked offline or breached.
At the moment, the security experts are trying to work out how the hackers gained access to White House communications recently. One suggestion is that they could have infected the computer systems through the staffers while they were working on government business outside the office. Another suggestion is that they used an intrusion method called social engineering in order to lure staffers into clicking on a malicious link.

|well If he ain't gonna have that kinda privacy who would have then ?|
|@1 the question should be anyone and everyone now we are enlightened as to the NSA`s and CIA`s global domination of cyberspace plan (which was known publicly in 2001 white paper proposing such)I would have thought a Blackphone might have been a better choice, but a blackberry with silent circle software will do the job,I would`nt have a blackberry personally,even everyday users who believe the hype that you should not have encryption unless you have something to hide need to wake up to government monitoring rather than capitulate and acquiesce to flagrant intrusions of users privacy by governments that neither own the internet nor pay the monthly ISP bill.|
As for security it must be said a good haxor would get into a blackberry and leave no signs of doing so or simply collect the encrypted data and decrypt it doing a man in the middle as do the NSA to foreign politicians including those whom they are partnered with like Angela Merkel etc.
|@2 well you are right If you have nothing to hide you don't need privacy or whatever the heck they call these days but what about #Freedom of oneself ? why should NSA CIA monitor your everyday life every corner has got eyes in form of CCTV ! the point is we need Privacy for ourself too it ain't about If you are bad you should be monitored what about the people whom don't even know that they are been watched by government and for what reason . . ?|
|@3 the point is valid that the incursion on privacy is an unconstitutional breach of rights in the USA which is why Bill Binney left the NSA back in 2000 when he discovered the NSA spying on US citizens,subsequently after his leaving and subsequent whistle blowing there was 911 from which the patriot act ,anti terrorism legislation allowed for the interception of communications within the USA and without and derived from the same surveillance that was already being done illegally by the NSA.|
Now I won`t speculate on the raison d`etre for the 911 attacks but Bush made threats against a state sponsored terrorist group and it happened whether by Al-Qaeda or the NSA/CIA it happened and from it came fear driven by the Government and their corporate sponsors that made people think surveillance was for their protection,one must state that no terrorist worth their salt would publicly announce their intentions in emails openly and even if the whole world was monitored a simple go word or cipher would not be picked out of millions of communications which is why no real terrorists have been caught via online communications in the last 15 years,what they do is get your metadata from which they make correlations as to your coming and goings likes and dislikes etc from which a good analyst/program can profile you,for security its pointless,for global marketing its a good tool to study trends and demographics.After the patriot act and Homeland security,Gitmo and other atrocities within and without the USA,Government hacking of Google and use of networking sites like facebook people that are egregious about their privacy have used VPN`s and proxies and now even these are under fire not for copyright piracy but for the Orwellian state that is now the USA and soon to be renamed Obamaland.
