According to a recent Bloomberg article, Apple privacy director Jane Horvath is planning to quit the business and join a law firm. Horvath has been Apple’s Chief Privacy Officer for the last several years; before to that, she held the position of Senior Director of Global Privacy.
Horvath has more than ten years of experience working for Apple, and she has previously held the positions of Chief Privacy Officer at Google and the U.S. Department of Justice. Horvath will now be employed by the law firm Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP, which has previously worked with Apple and recently handled Apple’s legal dispute with Epic Games.
At her capacity as Chief Privacy Officer, Horvath represented Apple in a number of public forums, including the CES in 2020 and the Computers, Privacy, and Data Protection conference in Brussels in 2022.
According to Bloomberg, Horvath was also in charge of Apple’s interactions with trade associations, lawmakers, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe.
A number of nations are considering laws that would reduce the safeguards the App Store provides for the iPhone, and Apple has recently been dealing with significant potential privacy problems. The side loading of applications is mandated under the Digital Markets Act in Europe and proposed legislation in the United States. Apple has not specified who would succeed Horvath.
