The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) of the European Union has taken full control. It shouldn’t be considered just big corporations that want to be cautious of securing privacy of their users. Facebook has partnered with TechPrivacy in the United States for community events conducted to educate small and medium businesses on 10 major factors and they should know about data protection of customers. These sessions will be conducted in New Jersey, New Orleans, Palo Alto, Baltimore, and San Diego.
Facebook is working with the Promontory consulting group to educate people in the European Union. The social giant has also brought on security consultancy HackerOne to educate mobile startup developers using the program FbStart. This program will target on getting secure to mobile apps and providing them a significant amount of help to stay in a way they need to grow.
