In 2009, Kaiser received a master’s degree in international relations from The University of Edinburgh. She then went on to acquire a doctorate in international law and diplomacy from Middlesex University in 2015.

Kaiser was the director of program development and business development at the now-defunct political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica from 2014 until 2018. She eventually left the organization, revealing the firm’s inner workings and how it exploited civilian data to target voters.

In 2019, Kaiser appeared in the Netflix documentary The Great Hack, which investigated Cambridge Analytica’s involvement in many countries’ political landscapes, including the United Kingdom’s Brexit campaign and the United States’ 2016 federal election. In the same year, she wrote and published Targeted, a book that tells the inside story of how huge actors are unlawfully capturing and using data to influence people’s decisions.

Kaiser works on data ethics and privacy rules in a variety of initiatives across sectors. She is also a public speaker, having spoken at major events such as the United Nations, European and British parliaments, the G20, and the Web Summit. She has also spoken at Harvard, Oxford, and Columbia.

“Data is the most valuable asset in the world.”


Kaiser is the Chair of the Board for Gryphon Digital Mining, a large bitcoin miner and the first to be ESG-focused and carbon negative, who aims to go public on Nasdaq by the end 2023. She chairs the ESG and Corporate Governance Committees, and helped create the first Sustainable Bitcoin Mining Certification.

With Kaiser on board, the organization is likely to continue facilitating training programs in local school systems and achieving its objective of expanding into enterprises and governments.
