As the Privacy Commissioner of Canada says cheating website Ashley Madison violated security protocols, the B.C. government says it’s wrapped up its investigation into government emails found in the massive data breach last August.
But we may never know if anyone lost their jobs over it.
While the Public Service Agency says accessing the Ashley Madison website, which facilitates extramarital affairs, with a work email is against its policies, it won’t say if anyone was disciplined.
The government says its a “personnel matter” so it would be “inappropriate” to comment.
14 government employee work email addresses were registered on the site.
Three belonged to managers, five were inactive and no longer in use, and none belonged to politicians.
As far as security, the province says its investigation concluded its network and data remained secure.
