Question

I understand that Uber's new Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi had a meeting in London on 3 October 2017 with TfL Commissioner Mike Brown. Given that Uber had been sitting on the news for more than a year that the personal information of 57 million Uber customers and drivers had been hacked, was this massive data breach disclosed to Commissioner Brown in that meeting? If so, did Mr Brown inform you?

Transport for London and I learnt of the data breach around the time it was first reported in the press, in late November.
