Be afraid: Executives warn about personal data harvesting and use

This is a very worrying article based on a recent KPMG survey about data privacy. If directors of companies are concerned about what their companies are doing with your personal data, then we really need to be worried.

That’s the shocking finding of a recent survey by consulting firm KPMG that asked 250 “director-level or higher” executives at companies with more than 1,000 employees about data privacy. Remarkably, 29% of them admitted how their own companies collect personal information is “sometimes unethical.” What’s more, 33% said that consumers should be concerned about how their company uses personal data.
