Facebook has had several leaky scandals and stealing private data this year, and besides the safety of the social network itself, the reputation is significantly compromised. Personal data that is basically the basis of every social network on Facebook is not entirely safe, or at least the majority of people think, and this has significant implications for the business of the entire company. Therefore, Mark Zuckerberg decided to solve this problem the way the billionaire often tries to do it – money.
Facebook, according to sources of the portal The Information, is currently looking for potential acquisition in the security area. His people are looking for a company that specializes in cyber security, and have already joined some of them with download offers.
Possible targets of this takeover have not been identified, but the same sources state that Facebook is obviously hurrying, as it plans to hold the acquisition by the end of this year. And when we look at the recent history of security flaws that compromised the data of tens of millions of users, it’s not unusual that the Zuckerberg team wants to bring security experts as soon as possible.
