£385,000 fine driven to Uber
Ridesharing company, Uber have been fined a huge £385,000 for the loss of UK customer data back in 2016, by The Information Commissioner’s Office. The data which included full names, addresses and phone numbers were stolen due to avoidable data security flaws.
The company also did not alert their customers that their data had been stolen and approximately 2.7 million people’s information were a part of the massive cache that was stolen by hackers.
This whopping new fine must be another blow to the company as they were also forced to pay $100,000 to the hackers to ensure that the data was destroyed. Not good at all…
