For the first time Japanese commission ordered Facebook to improve security

For the first time Japanese commission ordered Facebook to improve security:

The Japanese government ordered Facebook to improve the protection of users’ personal information following the recent data breaches that exposed data from millions of people.

… On Monday, Japan’s Personal Information Protection Commission ordered a further investigation of the data breach and asked the company to implement preventive security measures.

This is the first time that the commission has issued warnings to the social network giant after it has conducted an investigation along with British authorities.

According to government spokesman Yoshihide Suga, Facebook told Japanese authorities that the recent data breach also included Japanese users.

The commission also ordered the company to improve communication with users being more transparent of the way it manages their data and promptly responding to request for deleting accounts.

… “It is the first time that the commission, which investigated the data leak with British authorities, has issued warnings to Facebook,” an official told AFP.

Facebook added to be committed to “promptly inform users if the platform was inappropriately used and cooperate with the commission and other countries’ regulators” on its website.

I wonder if this will translate into actual change.
