Deputy DPC To Leave Post for Apple
PRIVACY—EU & IRELANDJanuary 25, 2013
Ireland Deputy Data Protection Commissioner Gary Davis will be leaving the agency to take up a job as head of privacy for Apple in Europe, The Irish Times reports. The move, according to the report, “may be viewed as a sign of the tech giant’s commitment to preparing at an early stage for the planned changes in Europe’s data protection regime.” Davis has been deputy commissioner since 2006 and headed the department’s audit of Facebook’s privacy policies—the office’s biggest investigation to date. He is slated to take up his new role next month, the report states.
