NEW YORK, N.Y. - Bloomberg LP, the financial news and information service, on Friday said it has appointed Samuel Palmisano, the former CEO of IBM, as an independent adviser on its privacy and data standards.
The move comes a week after revelations that Bloomberg journalists had access to some information on customers' use of Bloomberg's data terminals, including when they last logged in.
The company apologized for the breach of privacy. The Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank have said they are looking into Bloomberg's use of data.
