Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox return for another episode of the award-winning Life with GDPR. In this episode, they discuss the recent conviction of Joe Sullivan former CSO at Uber for his role in hiding a data breach which hit the company. Sullivan was convicted in the US in October 2022 in connection with an investigation into a ransomware attack on Uber in 2016. However, we look at the conviction from the GDPR and UK perspective and ask does it portend potential liability for CSOs, CISOs and CCOs in the EU and UK. For instance, does this mean that there are likely to be more prosecutions against executives? And could we see similar prosecutions in Europe? Some of the highlights include:
- What were the facts?
- Was Sullivan guilty of negligence or intentional conduct?
- Why were prior Uber fines so significant?
- What happens next?
- Could this lead to more prosecutions of executives?
- What does this mean under GDPR and in the UK?
