Facebook Facing Fallout Over Alleged Privacy Breaches
- Filter By Cybersecurity
Starting April 9, Facebook will begin alerting users whose data may have been harvested by Cambridge Analytica. As part of this process, the company plans to post a link at the top of users’ news feeds that will allow them to see which apps are connected to their Facebook accounts and what information those apps are permitted to see. Additionally, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before U.S. Congress on April 10 and April 11. Zuckerberg will appear before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees on April 10 and the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the morning of April 11. Zuckerberg’s testimony will hopefully shed more light into how this alleged violation occurred and its broader implications on data privacy in general.
