No compensation in Cambridge Analytica data breach case, says FB
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced a round of questions this week from European Union lawmakers at the Brussels-based European Parliament regarding the data breach case. As per media reports, data of almost 3 million European Facebook users was misused by political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
EU lawmakers strongly believe that Facebook is liable to pay compensation to the European users affected by the data breach.
In response, Facebook maintained that it was a “breach of trust” and added that no details regarding bank accounts, credit cards or national ID numbers were shared. It further insisted that there was no evidence that EU users’ data had been involved. The data breach involved information of only the US users.
