In making these deals, Facebook may have violated a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission, which requires the company to disclose its privacy-related behavior. ...Read More »

Personal Data discovery after the GDPR deadline The GDPR deadline is now behind us and perhaps unsurprisingly there is wide disparity between levels of compliance across those organisations affected.
