Today Uber Technologies announced a massive data breach of approximately 57 million consumers and drivers.  Compounding the damage done by Uber’s failure to secure customer and driver data Uber chose to cover up the breach – reportedly going so far as to pay $100,000 to the hackers responsible for stealing the data.  The failure to notify people affected by a data breach only compounds the problems caused by a breach, as the delay costs people the opportunity to protect themselves from identity theft or other scams.  That is why nearly every state has passed a Data Breach Notification Law, requiring businesses to tell affected people when their data has been compromised. These laws are important safeguards to protect individuals affected by a breach and Uber should be held accountable for violating consumers and drivers rights.
