FTC tightens reins around Uber following 2016 breach
The Federal Trade Commission will expand its oversight of Uber following the disclosure of histoire des boucles d’oreilles créoles its improper withholding of a 2016 security breach that exposed sensitive data for more than 25 million users.

Thursday’s expansion of that settlement, the FTC said, came after it learned Uber failed to disclose a 2016 breach that exposed 25 million names and email addresses, 22 million names and mobile phone numbers, and 600,000 names and driver’s license numbers of US Uber drivers and riders. The FTC said Uber learned of the breach in November 2016 but didn’t disclose it to consumers or the FTC for another 12 months. Uber also paid hackers who exploited the bague femme or blanc topaze vulnerability $100,000 and claimed the payment was made through a bug bounty program.
“After misleading consumers about its privacy and security practices, Uber compounded its misconduct by failing to inform the Commission that it suffered another data breach in 2016 while boucles d’oreilles dormeuses topaze the Commission was investigating the company’s strikingly similar 2014 breach,” acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen said in a statement. “The strengthened provisions of the expanded settlement are designed to ensure that Uber does boucles d’oreilles creoles reminiscence not engage in similar misconduct in the future.”
Under the expanded agreement, Uber is compelled to disclose certain types of incidents involving customer data and to submit to the FTC all the reports dragon quest 8 bague femme from the required third party boucles d’oreilles clips luxe audits of Uber’s privacy program rather boucles d’oreilles argent et rubis than only the initial one.
In a statement issued Thursday, Uber Chief Legal Officer Tony West wrote:
My first week boucles d’oreilles créoles swarovski at Uber was the week we disclosed the 2016 breach. When [CEO] Dara Khosrowshahi joined the company, he committed on behalf of every Uber employee that we would learn from our mistakes, change the way we did business, and put integrity at the core of every decision we boucles d’oreilles clips à vis made. Since then we have moved quickly to do just bague femme cristal that by bague femme diamant de luxe taking responsibility for what happened. I am pleased that, just a few months ou trouver des boucles d’oreilles clips after announcing this incident, we have reached a speedy resolution with the FTC that holds Uber accountable for the mistakes of the past by imposing new requirements that reasonably fit the facts.
The updated settlement comes amid last week’s bombshell revelations boucles d’oreilles dormeuses femme from Facebook that
