Government 'examining' responses from Facebook, Cambridge Analytica

Facebook and Cambridge Analytica: What You Need to Know

"But I believe it is nearly certain that the number of Facebook users whose data was compromised through routes similar to that used by Kogan is much greater than 87 million, and that both Cambridge Analytica and other unconnected companies and campaigns were involved in these activities".

Brittany Kaiser, who guided Cambridge Analytica's work with ICOs, has been critical of the company since leaving it in February.

Blockchain technology consultant Jill Carlson, who attended meetings where Cambridge Analytica pitched its services to crypto fimrs, said the company's pitch was contrary to the hallmark ideas of openness and transparency that drew her to digital currency projects like bitcoin.

Officially, Cambridge Analytica said their ICO would give consumers a chance to sell data directly to CA rather than giving it away on Facebook, for example.

"In hindsight, I now think that there is reason to believe that misuse of data was rife amongst the businesses and campaigns of Arron Banks", she said in written testimony to the committee.

The alleged involvement with Dragon Coin, also associates Cambridge Analytica with Wan Kuok-koi, the leader of the famous 14K gang in Macau, who was was released from prison in 2012 after serving a 14-year term.

The Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology issued separate notices to Facebook and Cambridge Analytica late last month seeking details about impact of the data breach in India and whether the data was used to manipulate the Indian electoral process.

Cambridge Analytica has been under scrutiny after a whistleblower came forward alleging that the firm, which worked on President Donald Trump's campaign, used Facebook data to target US voters based on personality traits.

"His legal representation has said that he's now not able to give evidence to the committee tomorrow, as a outcome of him having been served an information notice, and being subject to a criminal investigation by the Information Commissioner's Office".

"We absolutely refute that any insurance data was used in it", he added.

He made the comments as part of a series of interviews that Emma Briant, a University of Essex lecturer, conducted with people involved in Britain's campaign to leave the European Union about propaganda used during the Brexit referendum.

Another one of the interviewees, former communications director for Leave.EU Andy Wigmore, compared the campaign's own strategy to Hitler's "very clever" propaganda machine. She told MPs that she was not privy to high-level decision making, and that her role was more a "glorified saleswoman; I never held a company directorship". Kaiser claimed the company had not been paid for the initial phase of work, which used UKIP data and was billed to UKIP.
