Cisco CEO complains to Obama over NSA equipment-tampering


Cisco(s csco) CEO John Chambers complained directly to President Barack Obama over the NSA’s alleged bugging of U.S. telecommunications equipment sent overseas, including Cisco’s own equipment. In a letter cited over the weekend by the Financial Times and Re/Code (and published by the latter), Chambers said the exposed surveillance tricks would undermine confidence in U.S. tech firms’ products, and begged Obama to set new « rules of the road ». Cisco has already complained about NSA « backdoor » revelations in recent months, and it continues to see orders drop off in emerging markets in the wake of the Snowden leaks.
