0

In a strongly worded speech today, Apple boss Tim Cook applauded the EU authorities for bringing in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) this year.

Cook also renewed the technology giant’s commitment to protecting personal data, which he warned was being “weaponized” against users.

“We shouldn’t sugar-coat the consequence,” Cook said at the international conference on data privacy in Brussels today, adding: “This is surveillance.”

“In many jurisdictions, regulators are asking tough questions. It is time for rest of the world, including my home country, to follow your lead.

“We at Apple are in full support of a comprehensive federal privacy law in the United States,” Cook added.
