11 May Google Canada Denies Mismanaging User Data
Google Canada’s head of public policy this week rejected claims that the search giant is failing to transparently and securely manage data.
Google says that the allegations of the chair of the Council of Canadian Innovators Jim Balsillie were overly prescriptive and denied selling the personal information of its users.
Theex-RIM co-CEO also warned government officials that there is a great risk in failing to regulate tech giants. He added that while it is a complex issue, policy makers need to address it urgently in a horizontal way and recommended the creation of a national data strategy that would drive development and innovation in Canada’s tech sector.
