Watch Mark Zuckerberg Senate testimony live – CNET

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to testify before Congress to answer questions about how his company uses and protects the data of its more than 2 billion users. The move comes in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica scandal that exploded last month, in which data from tens of millions of Facebook users was improperly obtained and utilized by the consultancy in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election.

You can watch today’s testimony live on YouTube, below. It starts at 2:15 p.m. ET.
