Cambridge Analytica/Facebook

Le G29 lance un groupe de travail sur les médias sociaux

Le groupe de l'Article 29, réunissant les autorités européennes de protection des données, a annoncé qu'il soutenait pleinement les investigations en cours de ses membres concernant la collecte et l'utilisation de données personnelles par et à travers les médias sociaux.

En outre, le G29 va créer un groupe de travail sur les médias sociaux afin de développer une stratégie à long terme en la matière. 

Déclaration d'Andrea Jelinek, présidente du G29:

“We reiterate our earlier commitment to assist and fully cooperate with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in its investigation of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook. We are also committed to work closely together through our existing Facebook Contact Group (The Facebook Contact Group includes the Data Protection Authorities of Belgium, France, Germany (Hamburg), the Netherlands and Spain) and speak with one voice."

“We are at the start of a new era of data protection. The protection of individuals against unlawful use of their personal data on social media platforms will be one of our key priorities."

“A multi-billion dollar social media platform saying it is sorry simply is not enough. While Cambridge Analytica and Facebook are on top of everyone’s mind we aim to cast our net wider and think longterm. This is why we are creating a Social Media Working Group. What we are seeing today is most likely only one instance of the much wider spread practice of harvesting personal data from social media for economic or political reasons. WP29 is fully aware, however, that the issue is broader and concerns other actors, such as app developers and data brokers. The work of this Social Media Working Group will continue after the establishment of the European Data Protection Board. The EDPB will have a wide range of competences in order to ensure the consistency of the application of the GDPR.”
