Google building a privacy 'red team' that will solve privacy concerns in the future

Google's latest job listing hints at the company building a privacy red team

If you're a heavy Google user like myself, you might be concerned with your data privacy. But, it looks like the Mountain View-based company is building themselves a privacy "red team" for such matters.




Google's new division comes hot on the hells of the FTC's $22.6 million record-setting fine, where the company was accused of a tracking cookie incident that allegedly occurred sometime in 2011 and 2012.


The 'Red Team' plans were found from a recent job posting, and according to ZDNet, a red team would normally work internally at a company to go over everything from policies and products, to services and the workforce in general. The job is usually described as a quality control measure taken a bit further, to make the company work more efficiently.
