Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced two days of grilling by Congress this week to address data misuse in the wake of revelations that millions of Facebook users had their private information given away to political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica in the run-up to the 2016 Presidential election.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday that about 87 million users had their Facebook data taken without their permission. Of those users, many were healthcare professionals who inadvertently allowed hackers and criminals the information they need to break into healthcare systems.

Reporting this developing story will be RACmonitor national correspondent and healthcare consultant Timothy Powell. Powell will describe how you can avoid getting your facility ensnarled in the phishing trap.
