Electronic Frontier Foundation senior information security counsel Nate Cardozo likely became quite familiar with WhatsApp and its parent company, Facebook, during his six-and-a-half years of working on cybersecurity policy for the EFF. And now, Cardozo is about to become even more familiar with WhatsApp and Facebook.
He explained the move in his post: “If you know me at all, you’ll know that this isn’t a move I’d make lightly. After the privacy beating that Facebook’s taken over the past year, I was skeptical, too. But the privacy team I’ll be joining knows me well and knows exactly how I feel about tech policy, privacy and encrypted messaging. And that’s who they want at managing privacy at WhatsApp. I couldn’t pass up that opportunity. It’s going to be an enormous challenge professionally, but I’m ready for it.”
Cardozo had been with OTI for four-and-a-half years.
