Sex chat with men - Ashley madison dating review

Have a dedicated risk management process in place to protect personal information."That's not a sexy tagline for a dating website that encouraged members to conduct extra-marital affairs.

Ashley Madison, which goaded more prudish corners of the internet with the tagline "Life is short.

Have an affair," was hacked in July 2015 by a group calling itself The Impact Team.

The hackers warned ALM that it would leak personal details of 36 million members unless ALM changed its policies -- specifically around letting users permanently delete their accounts.

ALM declined, the hackers leaked the data and scandal ensued as users panicked about their private lives and the internet raked through the dirty laundry.

Now, the joint Australian-Canadian investigation into the hack has found ALM "fell well short" of its responsibility to customers.

The report found that ALM "did not have appropriate safeguards in place considering the sensitivity of the personal information" it held.

This included a lack of "documented information security policies...

[and] an explicit risk management process" and that it failed to adequately train staff at all levels on their security and privacy obligations.

The Privacy Commissioners also slammed ALM for its practice of retaining customer information, even after users had deleted or deactivated their accounts, some having paid for the privilege of doing so.
