Google dismisses 80 employees over Data theft issue

People often blame tech giants such as Google and others for stealing their data, but this move by Google may force you to change your views regarding these companies as a recent report claims that Google has dismissed 80 employees for manipulating or misusing data.

Approximately 36 employees were initially suspended when the firing began in 2020. This indicates that the big tech firms are fighting with their staff to protect their user’s data. Although Google has not acknowledged this, this report was based on an internal Google document. The employees were charged with improperly managing sensitive data, including sharing users’ personal information with third parties, according to the report.

The remaining 10% were charged with interfering with Google systems, prompting Google to terminate another 26 employees two years ago. Similar incidents were recorded in 2018 as well, albeit the number of cases was far less at that time. By taking this step Google intends to make its platform safer for its users. Although Google has various options to penalize its staff for their misdeeds, instead of using such measures, the company has simply dismissed its staff.

With this decision, Google hopes to send a message to the people that this type of crime will never be forgiven.Although, Google is not the first to take the step against data theft as several other big tech firms had also taken necessary steps to protect their user’s data. I Hope with this step Google will succeed in ensuring its user’s complete safety and reliability of their data.
