Sure, the fallout from the NSA surveillance scandal has impacted American consumers’ impressions of major technology companies. But have those negative feelings also extended abroad? According to one major technology CEO, the spy scandal has affected business abroad as well as on the homefront.
Qualcomm Inc. CEO Paul Jacobs recently told The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) that the NSA fallout has clearly impacted the company’s business in China. While Jacobs did not explicitly say that the scandal has impacted business, he did say the company is seeing increased scrutiny from foreign business partners.
