$5 billion privacy fine?

“Potential Facebook Settlement With FTC Likely to Include WhatsApp,” The Wall Street Journal, May 3, 2019.  Privacy settlement over misuse and disclosure of users’ information may include WhatsApp, but maybe not Instagram.

The government steps in to apply privacy protections to Facebook and its subparts.  That’s potentially good for your information security.  The fines (rumored in the $5 billion range) may be the least of it.

Governance.  Privacy.  Information.
