    WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

    Cambridge Analytica, firm at centre of Facebook data scandal, shutting down


    Cambridge Analytica, the Britain-based political consulting company, will be shutting down, as will SCL Group, its parent company. The consultancy is at the centre of the privacy scandal that saw the improper use of data from 87 million Facebook users, including more than 600,000 Canadians. The company was hired by U.S. President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign and has embroiled social media giant Facebook in a scandal that has hurt its reputation and its stock price. Facebook is now the subject of multiple investigations in various jurisdictions and has pledged to review how it handles user data in response to the revelations. The decision to shut down SCL Group and Cambridge Analytica was reportedly taken because both companies were losing clients and faced rising legal fees over the Facebook investigation. The companies will now begin bankruptcy proceedings.
