US leaders meet with tech CEOs to fight terrorism online

The primary focus will be on countering terrorists' messages, including finding ways to "disrupt" radicalization, measure anti-terrorist efforts and recognize extremists' recruiting methods. Privacy issues like encryption are supposed to be secondary. However, there's a concern that the leadership will keep up its push for backdoor access despite the known security risks. The subject is bound to come up, according to some of the Guardian's tipsters.
Whether or not the government succeeds is up in the air. While these tech firms have taken steps to fight terrorism, they're leery of anything that makes it look like they're inviting government spiesand otherwise compromising customers' privacy in the name of security. As such, it's likely that the government will only get some of what it wants. Internet companies may do more to block terrorists and send out more positive vibes, but they probably won't budge on changes to their technology.
