As Forbes first reported earlier in the day, and Google has now confirmed, Alma Whitten is retiring after a decade of work with Google, and as the director of privacy for product and engineering since 2010. She will be replaced by Lawrence You, who has eight years at Google under his belt and is a current infrastructure engineer who has been involved in current privacy efforts. You will report to Eric Grosse, the vice president of security and privacy engineering.
Whitten will stay on board to help during the transition, and Google is confident that user data will be kept as safe and secure as in the past. We wish her the best of luck, and can imagine a three-year tenure as privacy chief at Google earns one a long and relaxing retirement.
