Meanwhile, Hania joins Uber from Dutch GPS and digital mapping specialist TomTom NV where he stood as Vice President of Privacy and Security for a period of almost eight years, helping to drive data protection and security within the firm on a global scale.

The pair will be tasked with ensuring the Uber’s data handling practices are vastly improved, with the firm having been subject to a data scandal last year, with a hack having affected more than 57mn of its users and drivers.
