Cyber incidents as a result of ransomware are rising at an alarming rate according to figures published by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
The number of reported data breaches following ransomware attacks between January to March this year had increased by 150% compared to the same period in 2020 and had risen by 136% year-on-year for the period April to June.

Keller Lenkner UK managing director Andrew Nugent Smith told Computer Weekly that it was disappointing that Uber had stated that it would only pay its drivers the minimum wages that they are entitled to when they were on a job rather than for the entire time that they were logged into its app and available for work.
We talked to Computer Weekly following the Supreme Court ruling on 19th February that Uber drivers were workers and therefore entitled to minimum wages and holiday pay. Keller Lenkner UK managing director Andrew Nugent Smith advised that each affected driver could be entitled to between £10,000 – £12,000 in unpaid wages.
We announced to Legal Futures that the firm had lodged claims in both the Employment Tribunal and the High Court following the Supreme Court ruling which confirmed that Uber drivers should be classed as workers.
Keller Lenkner UK managing director Andrew Nugent Smith talked to Wired and confirmed that the firm is representing around 9,000 Uber drivers in claims filed in both the High Court and the Employment Tribunal for unpaid minimum wages and holiday pay.
We talked to the New Statesman to confirm that drivers who had worked for Uber since 2015 are likely to be entitled to backdated minimum wages and holiday pay following the Supreme Court ruling recognising them as workers.
