Tech Talk: What Should Congress Ask Mark Zuckerberg?

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud iTunes, and Google Play.

In this episode of Tech Talk we hear from our privacy powerhouses, CDT President & CEO Nuala O’Connor and Director of Privacy & Data Michelle De Mooy. 

This week, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be testifying before both the House and Senate about how the data of Facebook’s users was used by Cambridge Analytica to target swing voters. The questioning will undoubtedly go beyond just this issue, especially with the recent admission by Facebook that all of its users likely had their information scraped from the site.

We asked our incredible team to preview the hearings and the broader issues around the Facebook Cambridge Analytica story, and specify what they think congressmen & women should ask.
