Apple ( AAPL) recently acknowledged that more leaks are dispersed into the public eye from the tech titan's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. and not through the Asian factories that build Apple products.
In response, Apple has had some employees attend an hour-long presentation given by former NSA investigators regarding how classified Apple information gets out into the world, according to The Outline.
"Last year was the first year that Apple [campuses] leaked more than the supply chain," said David Rice, who leads global security at Apple. "More stuff came out of Apple [campuses] last year than all of our supply chain combined."
That said, the tech titan still implements security measures to prevent the leaks from happening.
Apple's security teams require factory workers in places like Shanghai to go through sensitive metal detectors.
In the U.S., Apple office hallways are considered "red zones," meaning employees are discouraged from discussing because there is a chance they may reveal information that Apple hasn't chosen to announce yet.
What's Hot On TheStreet
TheStreet's Lindsay Rittenhouse went shopping online at Ohio stores to see how Whole Foods stacked up against Walmart Stores Inc. (WMT) and rival grocer Kroger (KR) . While the results may not be shocking, they show just how much Amazon will have to cut for Whole Foods to be on equal footing with some of its competitors.
The cost of eight everyday food items at Whole Foods, TheStreet found, were nearly double those of the ones at Walmart, but Kroger undercut them both. Whole Foods' basket cost $38.29; Walmart's, $19.86; and Kroger's, $16.58.
With data as shocking as this, it's no wonder Whole Foods founder John Mackey is in love with Amazon.
Tesla's stock is out of control: Tesla Inc. (TSLA) shares are expected to have a strong session amid reports Elon Musk's electric car baby may open a new production facility in China. Such a move would avoid tariffs in the world's second-largest economy, but risk the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump's "buy American, hire American" industrial policy, TheStreet's Martin Baccardax reports.
Tesla's market cap is now more than $60 billion and climbing, despite the company continuing to lose money. Ford's (F) market clocks in at $44.7 billion, while General Motors (GM) stands at $51.9 billion.
