Meet the Expert: Alex Gorelik on Data Privacy Regulations at Facebook

Video description

In 2020, Mark Zuckerberg famously declared that "the future is private," reflecting Facebook's commitment to doing privacy right. It’s a formidable challenge for a company with a codebase containing more than 100 million lines of code, to which engineers make thousands of changes per day. It can only be tackled by the entire company working together. While Facebook has more to do, it’s already made significant progress on privacy improvements across the company in terms of processes, products, and engineering teams.

In this Meet the Expert with Facebook software engineer Alex Gorelik, learn how Facebook is implementing best-in-class privacy at scale without slowing down development. You’ll explore best practices for making data privacy everyone's responsibility, learn how to build processes, technical tools, and frameworks that support privacy work, and hear lessons learned while implementing privacy for billions of users.
