According to the Article 29 Working Group last Wednesday, a number of data protection authorities will be working together on probing the data breach case of ride-hailing company Uber.

The group, which will be led by Dutch authority Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, will be composed of watchdogs from Italy, Spain, France, Germany, British and Belgium, as decided upon in a meeting last Wednesday in Brussels.

The investigations will remain at a national level, but France’s DPA said that the task force was formed to make the probes as consistent as possible.

In response to the announcement, Uber said that it will fully cooperate with the group and further revealed that the company is unaware how many of the 57 million affected users are in Europe.
