If there’s any company that knows a thing or two about enforcing privacy within a company, it’s Uber. The company settled in 2017 with the Federal Trade Commission, which mandated that it implement a comprehensive privacy program. Since then, there have been many internal shifts at the ride-hailing company, including a new chief of cybersecurity, a new data protection officer as mandated under the GDPR, and its very first CPO. Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, reports on the hiring of Ruby Zefo, CIPP/US, CIPM, FIP, who comes to the role of CPO from Intel (and makes a great general session host, right?). For more on how privacy works at Uber, check out Uber engineer Roche Janken and Uber Legal Director Derek Care in “Automating Privacy: Legal and Engineering Collaboration at Uber.” The session takes place today at 10:30 a.m.
