Guardian Soulmates Data Breach – Curtain Raiser for Business Continuity Awareness Week

Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW) takes place this year from the 15th to the 19th of May and focuses on the very topical issue of cyber security.  As a timely curtain-raiser for BCAW 2017, the news emerged on Monday that user IDs and email addresses for customers of the ‘Guardian Soulmates’ dating website had been leaked.  Whist this information may not appear to be as sensitive as, for example bank details or medical information; it is potentially embarrassing for those involved, and has already resulted in some users being targeted with offensive messages.  Interestingly, it appears that a third-party supplier was responsible for the leak.
