Next time someone tells you they’re a “privacy professional” ask “what kind?”
“Do you get paid to help protect my privacy or to erode it?”
They’ll say “to protect it.”
Then ask them “who pays you? And how do they make their money?” And you’ll get your real answer.
Is this a real title people call themselves?
@wakingrufus Yep. I know. But it’s accurate. They get paid to work in privacy. They’re professionals. It doesn’t necessarily mean they give two hoots about protecting it. In fact, think about who has the money today and can afford to employ them.
@aab Exactly. Was going to hashtag it that but ran out of characters :)
Heard that about lawyers, they work for, hmm, their clients
@aral Consumers never pay
