UK Watchdog Fines Facebook over Users’ Data Breach

British regulators on Thursday slapped Facebook with a fine of 500,000 pounds ($644,000) – the maximum possible – for failing to protect the privacy of its users in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

The Information Commissioner Office found that between 2007 and 2014, Facebook processed the personal information of users unfairly by giving app developers access to their information without informed consent.
