Christopher Wylie (age 28) is a Canadian whistleblower who was the former Director of Research at Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics company that may have influenced the result of the United Kingdom's 2016 Brexit referendum and of the 2016 American presidential election that brought Donald Trump to the White House.
In 2018 Wylie became a whistleblower, giving The Guardian documents that described the secret workings behind Cambridge Analytica. The documents center around Cambridge Analytica's alleged unauthorized possession of personal private data from some 50 million Facebook user accounts, obtained for the purpose of creating targeted political campaigns for the 2016 US presidential elections. These campaigns were based on psychological and personality profiles mined from the Facebook data.
On 27 March 2018, Wylie gave evidence to the UK's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee which contained further revelations about the practices at Cambridge Analytica and its associated companies.
Wylie's revelations triggered government investigations on both sides of the Atlantic and pushed long-simmering privacy concerns.Contents
