 Facebook scandal leader Cambridge analysis was ordered to provide data to users.


NetEase technology news May 7th, according to CNET reports, Facebook recently broke the data leakage scandal, and behind the scenes is the British CambridgeAnalytica. Now, the office of the information commissioner of the United Kingdom (ICO) asks the company to tell an American citizen what data he has and how to use it. This may pave the way for other tens of millions of American users to obtain information about their data. On Friday, ICO ordered CambridgeAnalytica parent to submit information about his own data to a university teacher in the United States within 30 days, otherwise he would face a criminal charge. This information includes copies of data, how data are obtained, who has been shared, and how data is used. DavidCarroll, an associate professor at the Parsons School of design in New York, submitted a SAR based on British law, and ICO took action on the request. SAR allows people to obtain computer records and related information from companies that own, use or share their data. The right to ask for personal data from an organization that owns your data is a fundamental right in the regulations of the data protection, ElizabethDenham, a British Information Commissioner, said in a statement. Professor Carol and other members of the public understand what personal data CambridgeAnalytica owns and how to analyze data. The CambridgeAnalytica scandal is mainly related to the US presidential election and the improper sharing of tens of millions of Facebook users data. But Carol did not act in the United States, but took legal action overseas because CambridgeAnalytica was just a shell company, and the US law was not as strict as Britains. ICO supports Carols request, suggesting that tens of millions of Facebook American users who do not know that the data is shared can also request CambridgeAnalytica to provide information. CambridgeAnalytica and its parent company SCLElectionsLimited are devoted to data analysis and voter research. In mid March, there were news reports that the companys Facebook application collected more than 80 million user data and handed the data to CambridgeAnalytica in violation of the Facebook rules. Later, in the 2016 US election, CambridgeAnalytica consulted Trumps campaign. SCLElectionsLimited can appeal against ICOs orders within 30 days. Neither SCLElectionsLimited nor CambridgeAnalytica responded to the request for comment.
