Security In Five Podcast

Nov 27, 2017

Uber was the recent hack that was made public. 57 million records of riders and drivers. The data stolen for the riders was name and email, no passwords, payment info or locations. The drivers had more sensitive data stolen that included their driver's license numbers. 

Instead of notifying the proper authorities and public releases, they paid the hackers $100,000 to delete the data, allegedly, and keep it quiet. This is a scary approach. 57 million people's data was in the hands of a criminal and it was covered up. This episode goes into the dangerous slippery slope of handling breaches this way.

Be aware, be safe.
