In an op-ed for The Hill, EU Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee Chair Claude Moraes calls for the U.S. and EU to work together to address the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica revelations. Moraes cites U.S. federal agencies intent to investigate the incident, noting the EU will conduct similar efforts, as well as the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office intent to fine Facebook as reasons why collaboration between the two nations is needed. “Lawmakers in the U.S. and the EU must respond to our shared challenge of providing an effective policy response to the multiple threats our citizens face in terms of data protection, privacy, cybersecurity and electoral processes,” writes Moraes, who added he will be leading a delegation to Washington to discuss Facebook and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement. Editor's Note: Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, writes about the ICO's decision to fine Facebook in this piece for The Privacy Advisor.
