PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) has been cleared privacy practices of Facebook. In an appraisal finished a year ago of the period in which data analytics consultancy Cambridge Analytica accessed the individual information of a large number of users.
Facebook had set up and executed a far-reaching security program and its security controls were working with adequate viability to give sensible affirmation to ensure the protection of secured data, PwC has been submitted a report to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on December 2017, which has been updated on FTC website
The report was an appraisal of the period from Feb. 12, 2015, to Feb. 11, 2017. The Wall Street Journal prior investigated Thursday on the PwC evaluation submitted to the FTC. PwC declined to remark when reached by Reuters.
Facebook has been under investigation from officials over the world since unveiling th at the personal data of 87 million FB users wrongly enclosed in the hands of Cambridge Analytica, a Britain-based firm procured by Donald Trump for his 2016 U.S. presidential election crusade
“We remain insistently dedicated to securing FB users data. We value the chance to answer the query or doubts of FTC,” Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman told Reuters in a messaged explanation on Thursday.
Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg showed up for hearings before U.S. officials a week ago and is right now confronting anxiety from European Union administrators to come to Europe and shed light on the information rupture including Cambridge Analytica.
The review by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is accessible on the FTC’s site; however, it is intensely redacted. It covers February 12, 2015, to February 11, 2017. Facebook consented to outside reviews at regular intervals as a major aspect of a 2011 settlement with the FTC over its security rehearses. It isn’t understandable from the report, as posted on the web, regardless of whether the organization informed PwC of the Cambridge Analytica issue.
