Atkins Thomson has secured an immediate removal of an article published on 25 January 2021, by Infosecurity (Reed Exhibitions Limited). The article not only wrongly linked C|T Group to the disgraced company Cambridge Analytica, but also wrongly inferred that C|T Group used measures similar to Cambridge Analytica such as using ‘data harvested illegally’ and the ‘invisible processing’ of data.

Infosecurity accepted that the article was misleading and defamatory of C|T Group and subsequently agreed to immediately destroy the article. Infosecurity also apologised unreservedly to C|T Group for any damage and inconvenience caused as a result of the publication.

C|T Group was represented by Graham Atkins and Moritz Schirmeister.
