Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg has apologised to the European Parliament for the recent data breach scandal involving British consultancy firm, Cambridge Analytica. During the livestreamed hearing in Brussels, Zuckerberg admitted that up to 87 million users, including 2.7 million Europeans, may have had their data hijacked by Cambridge Analytica, which worked for US President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.

The Facebook Chief said, they are taking steps to prevent a repeat of a massive breach of users’ personal data. He added that Facebook would make fresh investments to protect its users. Zuckerberg also welcomed European Union, EU’s sweeping new personal data protection rules, saying that Facebook was adopting similar steps.

The Facebook Chief, who has repeatedly apologised for the data breach, had told the US Congress last month that more stringent EU rules could serve as a model globally.
