Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated Facebook is in an 'ongoing arms race' with Russia while being questioned at a Joint Senate Judiciary and Commerce hearing in Washington DC on Tuesday. «This is an ongoing arms race. As long as there are people sitting in Russia whose job it is to try to interfere with elections around the world, this is going to be an ongoing conflict», he said... Еще. «One of my greatest regrets in running the company is that we were slow in identifying the Russian information operations in 2016. We expected them to do a number of more traditional cyberattacks which we did identify and notify the campaigns that they were trying to hack into them, but we were slow in identifying the type of new information operations», Zuckerberg said. The hearing, entitled «Facebook, Social Media Privacy, and the Use and Abuse of Data» came in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal in which the personal information of up to 87 million users was taken without their consent, and revelations arose about foreign interference in the 2016 Presidential elections.
