The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner released a report on its investigation of Uber's 2016 data breach that affected 57 million individuals, BankInfoSecurity reports. The OAIC found Uber violated the Privacy Act of 1988, alleging noncompliance on required data protection measures, data retention practices and more. The OAIC will not issue a fine because the 1.2 million Australians affected did not file complaints. However, Uber will be required to create and maintain an information security program and appoint a coordinator to lead the initiative.
