Cambridge Analytica CEO resigns

During the second day of Facebook’s CEO testimony before the US Senate in regard to the users’ privacy breach, the Cambridge Analytica’s Board issued a Press Release stating that Alexander Tayler resigned the position of the acting CEO. He will resume his previous position as Chief Data Officer. The Board expressed appreciation for his service during ‘a challenging time for the company.’ This announcement came after Cambridge Analytica suspended its previous CEO, Alexander Nix, end of March, amid public revelations that the company improperly obtained personal information of tens of millions of Facebook users from a Cambridge University researcher Aleksandr Kogan, who collected the data through an app he developed and connected to Facebook in 2013.
