We have been working closely with the ICO in their investigation of Cambridge Analytica, just as we have with authorities in the US and other countries. We’re reviewing the report and will respond to the ICO soon. - Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officerICO said that it revealed its initial findings, something they don’t normally do, due to high public interest on the issue. These findings indicate that Facebook is only starting to feel the real heat. UK’s collaborative investigations with Federal Trade Commission of the USA, FBI, and the Security and Exchange Commission are now being encouraged ahead. As per ICO’s report of the findings, Facebook is guilty of allowing Aleksandr Kogan to develop an app that collected user data on behalf of Cambridge Analytica. Although Facebook withdraws permission of apps to collect such kinds of info in 2015, ICO says that many users weren’t ‘sufficiently informed that their data was accessible in this way.’ Stay tuned to get more of this new fallout spree on Facebook regarding the Cambridge Analytica issue.
