My Chosen Event

posted by Shannon Spurrier

 

 

 

 

I have chosen the Ashley Madison scandal as a recent newsworthy event that questioned the ethics of a company.

 

In mid July, a website that lavishes in arranging extramarital affairs was hacked. The team of hackers stole the website's user database and transaction history dating back to 2007 and released it to the public, calling out more than 30 million users and their personal information. Not only does Ashley Madison advertise their services by stating that the "anonymity of the web will make having an affair easy and risk free," but the site is swarming with advertisement of trustworthiness, discretion, and security. After the compromise, the online company offered nothing to its high paying members and failed to reassure its customers that security measures would be enhanced for the future. Ashley Madison never apologized, and they actually stated that their business is thriving because of the recent exposure. Many, including myself, agree that these unfaithful customers got what they deserved. However, I'd like to focus on the lack of ethics and credibility of the company during this recent event.
