UK Privacy Chief Says Facebook Scandal Not Isolated

UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham told the civil liberties committee of the EU institution last  Monday that privacy missteps similar to Facebook’s recent scandal may be happening in other online platforms.

Denham, who is leading the investigations into the Cambridge Analytica scandal, said that there is a lack of transparency for users across many platforms and not just on Facebook. She added that the GDPR will not only give regulators across Europe equal rights and responsibilities, but also new tools that can compel companies to delete algorithms or stop processing.
