UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Five billion dollars. This is the amount of the record fine that Facebook will have to pay for failing to protect personal data. So decided an American federal regulator.
The Ministry of Justice has yet to give the green light to this agreement amicably.
The social network of Mark Zuckerberg should hardly be affected by this fine. The company’s profits in 2018 amounted to $ 22 billion.
The investigation that led to this sanction was opened in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica case in March 2018. Personal data collected by the social network had reached this British firm.
