Brittany Kaiser, Former Cambridge Analytica Director, Co-Founder of DATA and star of the Netflix documentary ’’The Great Hack” is ready to take the stage, on November 12, at GoTech World 2020: The New Reality. 

Brittany will address sensitive subjects, such as: data weaponization, data privacy, various methods of manipulation and influence of people, along with how important protecting your data privacy is and part of her experience at Cambridge Analytica to over 16.000 attendees.

In January 2018 Brittany left Cambridge Analytica, and later the same year, she testified before the U.K. parliamentary investigation on Fake News by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, providing both verbal and written testimony and documents. Kaiser decided to become a whistleblower because she wanted the truth about Cambridge Analytica and its activities to be exposed in the public domain. The data rights activist decided to testify in this process also because she wanted the truth about Cambridge Analytica and its activities to be exposed in the public domain and because she discovered that the data collected is used for purposes that are contrary to
fundamental human rights.

Brittany is a figure considered by many around the world to be an expert in the use of data, digital legislation, and blockchain technology. She speaks about these topics at international events and conferences to promote long-term change and adoption of ethical principles in the online environment.
