Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox return for another episode of the award-winning Life with GDPR. In this episode, we discuss the recent conviction of Joe Sullivan former CISO 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 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? For a more detailed discussion and links to the case, check out the Cordery Compliance News Alert on the case, which you can find in the link below.  Some of the highlights  include:  1.     What were the facts? 2.     Was Sullivan guilty of negligence or intentional conduct? 3.     Why were prior Uber convictions so significant? 4.     What happens next? 5.     Could this lead to more prosecutions of executives? 6.     What does this mean under GDPR and in the UK?
