CES 2020 News: Tech Executives Answer Tough Questions About Privacy

A panel of tech executives discussed privacy, encryption, and digital advertising this week at CES 2020. Apple’s senior director of global privacy Jane Horvath came out in strong favor of privacy protection, commissioner Rebecca Slaughter of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission came out even stronger. Facebook’s vice president of public policy Erin Egan maintained that Facebook does just fine in protecting consumer privacy, while Wing Venture Capital partner Rajeev Chand served as moderator and posed timely questions to the group.

(Proctor & Gamble’s global privacy officer Susan Shook occasionally got a word in, but the spotlight focused on companies that provide technology far more than those that use it.)
