Mark Zuckerberg's testimony on the Cambridge Analytica scandal is coming

Ο διευθύνων σύμβουλος της Meta Mark Zuckerberg και η πρώην COO Sheryl Sandberg θα πρέπει να καταθέσουν σε ομοσπονδιακό δικαστήριο για την υποτιθέμενη εμπλοκή τους στο περιβόητο σκάνδαλο της εταιρείας Cambridge Analytica.

The depositions will take place next September, at least 5 years after the revelation of her work Cambridge Analytica.

Cambridge Analytica was a British political consulting firm that used Facebook user data to target and lobby potential voters before the 2016 election in favor of Donald Trump.

After the scandal that followed, an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (Federal Trade Commission) began, which led Facebook to agree to a record $5 billion settlement about its privacy practices.

A new command (PDF) filed in the Northern District of California on Tuesday shows that Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg agreed to testify for six and five hours respectively in September of this year.

The new filings are due to a class-action lawsuit filed against Meta, which claims it violated consumer privacy laws when it shared user data with Cambridge Analytica in 2015.

In addition to Zuckerberg and Sandberg, the court is also seeking to testify from current Meta CTO Javier Olivan — who previously served as the company's Chief Growth Officer — as well as several other "key witnesses."

Olivan's testimony is expected to last three hours. According to Tuesday's order, Meta will also have to hand over 1.200 documents "previously held by the company as confidential." The Best Technology Site in Greece
