Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg yesterday made public his confusion and frustration over “repeated reports” of government spying. In calling on the U.S. government to “be the champion for the Internet, not a threat,” Zuckerberg said, “They need to be much more transparent about what they’re doing, or otherwise, people will believe the worst.” Transparency for a company like Facebook, one predicated on users sharing personal information with one another, is a huge part of maintaining such trust. This same notion was explained in more detail by Facebook Chief Privacy Officer, Policy, Erin Egan at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit. Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, breaks down Egan’s conversation with CDT’s Nuala O’Connor, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, in this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor.
