Facebook yesterday assured Sri Lanka that strict measures are in place to ensure the safety and security of users.

Addressing a virtual media briefing, facebook officials said that user information is not even freely available to the Sri Lankan Police. Amber Hawkes,head of Safety Policy, Asia Pacific at Facebook told Daily Mirror in response to a question raised that there is a strict criterion to follow for the law enforcement authorities seeking information.

“We have what is called basic subscriber information.its limited information.they can request that only if there has been a violation of local laws they are investigating. our teams will then assess it on a legal basis.we also have a team that provides training to local law enforcement about how to use our portal to request that kind of information and the parameters for it,which are very clear and very limited,”she said.
