Obama's Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice Joins Netflix's Board


In the midst Facebook's Cambridge Analytica debacle that has many questioning their security and privacy online, other corporations are looking to ensure their vast patronage that their data is safe. Netflix, the world's most famous streaming service, has appointed former United Nations ambassador and Obama-era National Security Advisor Susan Rice to their board in a bid add some extra protection to their servers.While Netflix has not been singled out for antitrust issues, they are a part an elite roster contentious tech giants with a considerable reach, alongside Amazon, Facebook and Google. 

This hiring effectively gives the company a government-level strategist who specializes in safety and diplomacy. "For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom," reveals Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. 

Rice may also be able to help the company tap into international markets to help them diversify their outreach amongst a more kaleidoscopic group individuals. 

Rice will now be joining Microst president and chief legal ficer Brad Smith, former co-chair Disney Media Anne Sweeney, and the executive chairman Zillow Group Richard Barton as Netflix board members.
