Cambridge Analytica must hand over data on US academic

The Information Commissioner's Office has ordered the data analysis and services company Cambridge Analytica to release all personal data it has collected on a US academic.

The ICO served SCL Elections, which is acting as the data controller for Cambridge Analytica, with a legal notice on 4 May telling it to hand over all the data it had collected on David Carroll, an associate professor at Parsons School of Design in New York.
