OAIC wins international privacy awards
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) was presented with two awards at the recent International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) for its 2015 joint investigation into the Ashley Madison data breach of 2015.
The awards were the ICDPPC Chair’s Grand Award for Innovation and the award for excellence in Dispute Resolution, Compliance and Enforcement.
Each award was jointly won by the OAIC, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the United States Federal Trade Commission.
In what now seems like such a small data breach — compared to Yahoo’s recent admission that 3 billion of its customers’ records were hacked — the Ashley Madison breach saw 36 million customers’ details compromised.
