So, on Wednesday, the regulators made a decision to form a task force to deal with the Uber breach, in which the company covered up the fact that hackers had stolen the details of 57 million users around the world.
The group of European data protection authorities said today they set up a task force to probe ride-sharing company Uber.
Last week, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi revealed the massive breach that took place under his embattled predecessor, Travis Kalanick, and The New York Times later reported that the company had paid a $100,000 ransom to the hackers responsible in an effort to sweep the incident under the rug.
It's the first time an exact figure has been given for the United Kingdom specifically after the hack, in which information such as email addresses, names, and phone numbers were leaked. Almost 11,000 drivers in the state were affected.
In Britain, Uber drew around 2.85 million users, on average, over the past three months, according to web and mobile app traffic measurement firm SimilarWeb, indicating that most British Uber users were likely caught up in the breach.
Under Washington law, the breach of names, phone numbers and addresses does not require notification, Ferguson said, but the driver's license numbers do. "There is no excuse for keeping this information from consumers".
Washington is the latest state to take Uber to court over its hidden data breach.
In a statement, Uber said the 2.7 million figure was still an approximation, not an accurate or definitive number.
For its part, Uber disclosed that two individuals outside the company inappropriately accessed user data stored on a third-party cloud-based service that it uses.
Uber also faces lawsuits filed by consumers over the issue.
