U.S. lawmakers formally asked Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to explain at a congressional hearing how 50 million users’ data got into the hands of political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
Technology The harvesting and sale of personal information
Investigators from Britain’s data watchdog entered the London offices of a data analytics firm at the center of a storm over allegations it improperly harvested Facebook data to target U.S. voters, a Reuters witness said.
About 20 officials, wearing black jackets with “ICO Enforcement” on them, arrived at the central London offices of Cambridge Analytica, soon after a High Court judge granted a search warrant sought by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
The officials, who were let into the building by security guards, brought crates with them, the Reuters witness said. ■
