EU Data Watchdogs Set Up Task Force To Tackle Uber Breach
30 November, 2017, 13:40 | Author: Valerie Burke
The State of Washington's Attorney General filed a complaint against Uber Technologies, Inc., (Uber) yesterday related to the 2016 hack that exposed the personal data of 57 million riders and drivers. The organisation has already parted company with its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, over the 13-month cover-up.
About 50 million Uber passengers had their names, addresses and phone numbers breached, but the hackers also got driver's license numbers for about 7 million Uber drivers, including 10,888 in Washington, Ferguson said.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) had previously said it had "huge concerns" about the breach. "However, its use may make other scams, such as bogus emails or calls appear more credible".
Central to the lawsuit are claims that Uber failed to protect its data and, once the breach occurred, actively went out of its way to hide this. And in Italy, the only European Union country to have announced a full-blown investigation into the Uber incident before Wednesday, the fine may be more than $1 million, with the amount being related to the number of Italians who were affected. People should continue to be vigilant and follow the advice from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
