Cambridge Analytica’s Parent Fined Over Data Request Compliance In The UK

Posted by at 1:46 pm on January 11, 2019

Cambridge Analytica’s parent company SCL Elections Ltd has been fined £15,000 plus costs for failing to hand over the personal data of a US citizen.

The case was brought by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), after a complaint filed by Prof David Carroll, who is a US citizen.

He was one of millions of people whose personal information was harvested from a variety of sources by the company.

SCL admitted it had failed to comply with the ICO’s legal notice.

The enforcement notice was issued one day before the firm went into bankruptcy administration last May.
