Uber’s Secret Tool for Keeping the Cops in the Dark

quote [ At least two dozen times, the San Francisco headquarters locked down equipment in foreign offices to shield files from police raids.

they’d been trained to page a number that alerted specially trained staff at company headquarters in San Francisco. When the call came in, staffers quickly remotely logged off every computer in the Montreal office, making it practically impossible for the authorities to retrieve the company records they’d obtained a warrant to collect. The investigators left without any evidence. ]

Diabolically effective response to the fact that uber's business model invites police raids.

As you’ll notice in the article it says computers were locked in foreign offices. I can’t speak for their policies but I’d love to see them try that shit here to any of the common three lettered agencies.

We’d seize all of the equipment as evidence until the key was provided. It would either be imaged and cracked by our CSI’s or it would sit in our storage facilities aging like fine wine. Then next week/month when you replace all that equipment? Boom, another search and seizure.

Oh noes?! Locked again? Seized for evidence. Storage.

Man, this is getting expensive for one of us.

^ all within the rule of law.
