Uber revealed last week that 57 million users were affected by the breach
A joint lawsuit was filed on behalf of IL and the city of Chicago on Monday, seeking to hold the ride sharing company accountable for a 2016 breach that exposed the data of 57 million customers and drivers worldwide. The organisation has already parted company with its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, over the 13-month cover-up.
Violations carry fines of up to US$2,000, and Ferguson said each day Uber failed to notify each customer constitutes a violation.
"Sometimes the information we get through the app or our website that we use to assign a country code is not the same as the country where a person actually lives", said the firm. 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.
Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) deputy commissioner James Dipple-Johnstone added: "On its own, this information is unlikely to pose a direct threat to citizens". It's believed that more than 57 million Uber users were affected globally. People should continue to be vigilant and follow the advice from the NCSC.
"We'll be working with the NCSC plus other relevant authorities in the United Kingdom and overseas to determine the scale of the breach, how it has affected people in the United Kingdom and what steps need to be taken by the firm to ensure it fully complies with its data protection obligations".
