Apple, Santa Clara County Sheriff, & bribery

Apple’s head of global security indicted on bribery charges

Thomas Moyer, who has run Apple’s security department since 2013, according to his LinkedIn page, had applied for concealed-weapons permits, according to the release. The sheriff’s office held up the application, the news release alleges, until Moyer agreed to get Apple to donate $70,000 worth of iPads.

I don’t recall the policy on bribes at Apple, but at another Silicon Valley behemoth, the official policy was basically, “In some countries, you may be asked for a bribe in order to do business. If doing so is not illegal, get ’er done.” I may have paraphrased a bit, but based on what I see in the news, that seems to be Apple’s policy as well. Nice to know we’re in a country where a little baksheesh is just part of doing business.
