Cambridge Analytica's Acting CEO Is Stepping Down

The acting CEO of Cambridge Analytica is stepping down. 

Acting CEO Alexander Tayler replaced former CEO Alexander Nix after he was suspended last month. 

A statement from the company's board said, "We would like to thank Dr. Tayler for his service in what has been a challenging time for the company."

The firm is currently the subject of a data scandal; it accessed the information of over 87 million Facebook users without their explicit permission.  

Tayler will return to his former role as chief data officer.
