As digital privacy becomes a more pressing issue, Facebook is launching two new initiatives to help small businesses and developers protect their customers’ data.
As explained by Facebook:
“In this day and age, it’s easier than ever for someone with a great idea to start a new company or develop an app from their kitchen table. But over the past year, we’ve heard more and more questions from small and medium business owners and developers about how to build with privacy in mind, especially ahead of new regulations like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).”
For the first new offering, Facebook has partnered with Professor Daniel Solove from George Washington University’s Law School, along with training company TeachPrivacy, to provide a privacy training course for small businesses.
“Delivered by the National Consumers League, each session will cover the 10 key things that SMBs should know about protecting their customers’ privacy. These sessions will be taught at Facebook’s Community Boost events in Baltimore; New Orleans; San Diego; East Palo Alto, California; and Edison, New Jersey.”
