The investigative long tail of the Cambridge Analytica scandal is slowly coming to its end. The British data rights regulator, the @ICOnews, has released its final report. Some interesting findings:
Annex 1 provides the Committee with detailed answers to the specific questions asked by the Committee. Annex 2 provides a deep dive into how SCL Elections / Cambridge Analytica used the personal data it held, whether these methods could be used in the future, and the associated risks to citizens.
…. concluded that SCL/CA were purchasing significant volumes of commercially available personal data (at one estimate over 130 billion data points), in the main about millions of US voters, to combine it with the Facebookderived insight information they had obtained from an academic at Cambridge University, Dr Aleksandr Kogan, and elsewhere.
