Box CEO Aaron Levie stresses his company is no threat to democracy, but he definitely votes for greater attention on data security and privacy:
“Fortunately, as far as we know, we were not involved in any election hacking, but as you can imagine, the whole Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal has sort of flipped the way that we’re thinking about social media and Internet platforms on its head.”
