EU Privacy Regulators to Discuss Uber Hack

European Union privacy regulators will discuss ride-hailing app Uber’s massive data breach cover-up next week and could create a task-force to coordinate investigations.
Uber faces regulatory scrutiny after CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said the company covered up a data breach last year that exposed personal data from around 57 million accounts, Reuters reported.
The chair of the group of European data protection authorities - known as the Article 29 Working Party - said on Thursday the data breach would be discussed at its meeting on Nov. 28 and 29.
While EU data protection authorities cannot impose joint sanctions, they can set up task-forces to coordinate national investigations.
When a new EU data protection law comes into force next May, regulators will have the power to impose much higher fines - up to 4% of global turnover - and coordinate more closely. Uber paid hackers $100,000 to keep secret the massive breach.
The stolen information included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world, and the names and license numbers of 600,000 US drivers, Khosrowshahi said. Uber declined to say what other countries may be affected.
