The Director of the FBI is again talking about the fine line between cyber security and privacy.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

Some lawmakers have suggested the FBI bulk up its tech capabilities so it can unlock encrypted devices during criminal investigations without the help of tech companies like Apple.

Director James Comey told a cyber conference at Georgetown University he doesn't like that idea, saying he doesn't want to:

(Comey) "Put the FBI in a situation of an arms race with every device that's made."

The FBI recently revealed it spent $1.3 million on a tool to unlock the iPhone that belonged to San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook.
