  • Was Apple’s obligation to protect customer privacy greater than its obligation to contribute to national security?
  • What dilemmas did Cook and the Apple management team face in this decision?
  • How could the dilemmas be resolved?

There is no right and wrong answer, however, you must make a solid argument to support your view.
