TORONTO (Reuters) - The office of Canada’s privacy commissioner said on Monday that it has opened a formal investigation into the 2016 breach of customer and driver data at Uber Technologies Inc, which the ride-hailing company disclosed last month.
“We have now opened a formal investigation,” spokeswoman Tobi Cohen said in an email. She declined to elaborate, citing Canadian privacy laws.
