It wasn’t even two years ago that Uber was fined for failing to disclose a data breach in 2014, and here we are again in the midst of another scandal. This time, it involves the personal and confidential data of 57 million riders and drivers, all of which was retrieved by hackers who held the data for ransom. Uber isn’t only responsible for not reporting this hack, but for also covering it up – a move made by former Chief Security Officer, Joe Sullivan, and his subordinates. Former CEO Travis Kalanick was also informed of the attack just a month after it happened and still failed to report it to the FTC despite the fact that it was involved in negotiating over a privacy settlement with the agency at the time of the hack. Uber claims that it took immediate steps to secure the data and prevent further unauthorized access. Of course, Uber paid the hackers the $100,000 ransom to delete the data and proceeded to cover up the breach from the FTC.
