Compare and contrast: How Uber handled its data breach last year and how Imgur handled the same kind of thing last week. (Hint: Each company responded in radically different ways.)

That’s what our tech panel – CSO‘s Michael Nadeau, Network World‘s Brandon Butler, Macworld‘s Michael Simon and Computerworld‘s Ken Mingis – chewed over first in this month’s episode of Tech Talk. In short: Why did Uber keep the breach secret for so long and pay the hackers $100,000? And is that really better than Imgur, which found out it had been hacked three years ago and went public within 24 hours.
