“We’re excited to have Christopher Wylie join us as we expand our new flagship technology conference Sooner Than You Think to Paris. His ability to shed light on how the use of personal data harvested from tens of millions of social media users may have affected the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the Brexit referendum is of vital public importance,” said Mark Miller, Editor of Bloomberg Live.
“We look forward to discussing with him his ideas for how personal data can be better protected.”
