The View From Silicon Valley While most chief privacy officers are sweating bullets, some firms couldn't be more delighted by the looming May 25 deadline for General Data Privacy Regulation. The strict European Union -mandated security regulations have “helped us grow our company significantly,” Hilary Wandall, chief data governance officer at TrustArc, a privately-held GDPR-compliance and security firm that is helping more than 800 companies worldwide, tells Barron's. TrustArc has worked on GDPR compliance since 2016, when its final rules were ratified, and intensified its workload the past year as it helped hundreds of companies worldwide in health care, financial services and retail. TrustArc and Vectra are among the tech companies, consulting firms, and law practices specializing in getting everyone else up to speed to comply GDPR in what market researcher Gartner estimates is a multibillion-dollar enterprise.

The 34-year-old chief executive officer was asked if his social network was a monopoly, if he’d open the company’s books to the EU’s powerful antitrust regulators to prove it wasn’t and called on to convince lawmakers not to call for the company to be taken apart at a controversial meeting that sparked criticism from many in attendance over his lack of detailed answers.
Facebook will ask its users to upload nude photos in an attempt to keep them safe. The feature is an attempt to stop so-called revenge porn, when sensitive images are uploaded to the internet to attack the person shown in them.
