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.But it's one that Ashley Madison might be wishing it adopted after it was hacked last year.
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.
"Though ALM had some security safeguards in place, those safeguards appeared to have been adopted without due consideration of the risks faced," the report found.
The report concluded that this was "an unacceptable shortcoming" considering Ashley Madison's high-profile as an adult dating site trading in sensitive information.
