Zuckerberg to meet European leaders to address data security concerns

Recently, social media giant Facebook confirmed their meeting with the European Parliament for discussing the ongoing and ever-increasing data privacy concerns. According to reports, in a meeting scheduled for the coming week, Facebook Founder-CEO Mark Zuckerberg will discuss the issues of data breach with Cambridge Analytica. 

The meeting will reportedly be a closed-door meeting and will be attended by various political groups. The heads of the European Parliament have confirmed that the ongoing data breach issue of Facebook will be discussed in the meeting. Later, Zuckerberg is also scheduled to meet French President Emmanuel Macron to discuss a range of issues. 

Earlier, the Facebook CEO was questioned about the joint hearing of the members of United States Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee at Capitol Hill. The interrogation was after the scandal of the data breach was all over the internet. 

Reports state that he had admitted that there were multiple cases of data breach and he also confirmed that his own personal information had been compromised. Cambridge Analytica has been accused of wrongfully accessing the data of over 87 million Facebook users to build political reputation, which influenced the US Presidential elections. Because of the accusations, the firm has declared bankruptcy and will soon be shut down in the US.
