8:30 pm
emily: is the writing on the wall for the nsa dragnet? we will look at that fate of the usa freedom that. -- freedom act. i'm emily chang. this is "bloomberg west." coming up is walmart ready to , compete with amazon? what the company would need to did you win over prime users. plus, a top google executives. what does rachel whetstone bring? kim kardashian visits our studio. the video game and reality star is getting us her secret to success. all of that ahead on "bloomberg west." breaking news out of symantec. a disappointing forecast.
8:31 pm
the security software maker saying it wants to develop more modern anti-hacking technology. let's go straight to cory johnson. it's about time, isn't it? cory: they might argue they have been making this is the very beginning. $1.6 billion in sale profit, 43 since that was expected. i just. most importantly, that is a decline. it is a percent less than the previous quarter. the company in the last six of the seven quarters have seen sales decline. predicting the same going forward in the next year. they are facing a lot of new competition. they need new kinds of anti-hacking technology. this company came out with a report saying hacking was up on the 40% year over year basis. companies are using tools on the cloud. they are hiring consultants to
8:32 pm
come in and do those things. these are not businesses where symantec is seen as very strong. they are trying to tailor its offering and cut costs in the process even as we saw sales declining on year-over-year basis. emily: we see hack attack after hack attack. presumably, it is the failure of symantec in many of those cases. thank you very much. staying on cyber security, the big debate over government surveillance continuing royal. the house passing a measure that would stop the nsa mass collection of phone records. your data. now the fight moves to the senate. the usa freedom act has the support of the white house, not everyone is so happy. former nsa and cia director general michael hayden writing the usa freedom act is exquisitely crafted to hobble the gathering of electronic intelligence. it is nsa reform that only isis could love.
8:33 pm
while the bill would make it illegal to collect phone data in bulk, information would still be held by telecommunications providers in the nsa would be able to access records with a court order. lawmakers have until june 4 two -- june 1 to find a compromise. for more on this i want to get to tom kellerman, and shawn henry of cloud strike. obviously this doesn't roll back the dragnet completely. someone stronger action taken. what do you want? guests: i want security and privacy. you have a balance of those things. you're never going to have 100% privacy and security. that is impossible. if you have one hundred percent privacy, there are people going to get hurt or killed. the lawmakers are looking at this as pandering to their constituencies and focusing on
8:34 pm
the privacy issues, and not necessarily weighing in the security aspects. it is important we not throw everything out completely without looking at security, where it has taken us, and the value it brings to safety of americans globally. emily: tom, you were obama's first cyber security officer. are we compromising safety here? guest: 20 in a fight what the weaknesses are and anderson with the vulnerabilities are, i agree with sean and that there needs fisa reform. to be is important for security that we maintain that preeminence of the nsa. to protect americans against electronic threats of today. emily: how do you expect this to play out? our phone records are still rolling in to the nsa. although some provisions in the
8:35 pm
patriot act are set to expire soon. that was a basis of the program in the first place. how does this play out? shawn: there is going to be some middle ground. there has to be accountability and oversight. our government needs to be held responsible for what they are doing in terms of collecting and how that is used with access to the data. that is critical. taking away all authorities to look at the data, to use it, but pieces of the puzzle together, to disrupt terrorist attacks that is a huge challenge to national security. there will be some middle ground. potentially with access through the carriers and having them how's it. i don't know that is fully effective but that may beware this lands in terms of lawmakers willingness to acquiesce in terms of privacy issues. emily: the phone records were
8:36 pm
exposed by former contractor edward snowden. i recently introduced -- interviewed a man at, a man who was concerned himself with these programs. he's the founder of megaupload and the target of the biggest copyright case in history. i asked him what his message for president obama is. take a listen. kim: what is my message? it would be nice if he delivered the change, if he didn't spy on the world population. emily: tell me about your relationship with edward snowden? kim: he will be remembered in history as one of the great people of our time. i think he is a hero and i admire him for his courage. emily what about julian assange? what is your relationship with him yet ofhim? kim: what julian assange is doing is putting a spotlight on the secrets. emily: you tweeted you were going to be hillary's worst nightmare. how so? >> it is probably more julian. i am aware of some of the things that are going to be roadblocks for her.
8:37 pm
if i can provide transparency with these people and make them part of what the internet party stands for, i will be happy to do that. emily: julian assange is going to be her worst nightmare? how so? kim: he has access to information. emily: what information? kim: i don't know the specifics. emily: why hillary? kim: she is an adversary to internet freedom. and she sent your -- emily: he signed your extradition request. and you have a bone to pick with her. kim: i like hillary. i like obama. it is crazy all of this happened. emily: should hillary be worried about julian assange? i will to bring back my panel of experts. tom kellerman obama's first
8:38 pm
cyber security officer and shawn henry, at cloud strike. what do you make of his remarks? and what julian assange may have on hillary clinton. shawn: he is implying he has gathered public in -- information that is not public. and underscores the sense that nothing is private anymore when we are talking about data being kept electronically, how they store it, how they transmitted. -- transmit it. it is not safe. it is not secure. i don't know, when he talks about internet freedom, if he is talking about everything being insecure people not having privacy. that sounds like privacy being breached in a way. perhaps hypocritical. but i think that when we are talking about data being kept electronically, it is never going to be secure. we have two up and recognize that. emily: we don't know what julian
8:39 pm
assange has on hillary clinton. but go ahead. tom: there is an assumption made that the u.s. is a monopoly on being big brother. there are multitudes of government agencies from other countries as well as hacker groups and crews that have the capacity to maintain omniscience, to be telepathic as it relates to our personal comings and goings. at a minimum we need to respect the fact that without cyber security legislation, we will never maintain the privacy of nationstates and criminal groups that abound. emily: what does this mean for companies like apple, google facebook, companies whose trust in them was undermined by the revelation of edward snowden? shawn: those companies, certainly everything i have seen publicly, they recognized consumer privacy as an issue they want to hold closely.
8:40 pm
i think that this process is a growth process for a lot of people. how data is maintained and stored. how it is shared. how companies or governments want to access it with subpoenas. this is a maturing process. it is an area people have a lot of experience in. we absolutely have to because the data is so sensitive and so critical to our economic and national security, companies are going to have to work closely to make sure they are abiding within the law and protecting the privacy of customers. emily: some people have been speculating that julian has some of hillary's e-mails. shawn henry, thank you for joining us. it is time for a status update. when i sat down with kim dotcom, one of the big questions was the
8:41 pm
status of piracy. it is a problem the entertainment industry is battling. there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. here is what we found. we have come a long way from napster and megaupload. it has been just too easy to of live music movies, and tv shows to the internet and share it illegally. take it from the so-called pirate king himself. kim: if you are a hollywood studio and you release your content in one country first the united states, and roll it out over a couple of months, and other countries along the world, and expect the internet community in these different countries to wait for the release. emily: "game of thrones" is the most pirated show in the world. the latest episode racking up 2.2 million illegal downloads in just 12 hours. that said streaming sites like spotify and netflix are said to actually be reducing the amount of piracy out there because they make it easier to watch and listen to what you want, when you want legally.
8:42 pm
then there is new technology fighting piracy. this is how the motion picture association of america puts it. youtube content id tool is one good example of a proactive tech driven solution that helps creators protect their work. joint initiatives are critical to ensuring that movies and tv shows continue to flourish online. twitter is life -- twitter's life streaming periscope made headlines. the ceo tells me he is working on it. >> part of our policies and how we craft products can make sure it is not a prominent part. emily: we went all the way to new zealand to interview kim dotcom. he is currently awaiting an extradition hearing. that is set for september. he does face 88 years in prison -- in prison. you can see my full interview tonight, 7:30 p.m. eastern and pacific. on "studio 1.0."
