Google is creating a new ‘global hub for privacy engineering’ centre in Munich, the ‘Google Safety Engineering Center’, which they say will ‘help users take back control of their data’.
Director Silkie Carlo said:
“It is clear that tech giants are finally responding to the public’s demand for privacy protections, but they too often deliver PR exercises rather than substantive change.
“We will closely scrutinize any privacy proposals from companies that have long profited from selling our data. They should be approached with a healthy dose of skepticism.”
