"Drizly & Rellas were alerted to security problems 2 years before the breach, yet they failed to act. Instead, they stored key information on an unsecured platform, didn't monitor for security threats, and exposed customers to hackers & identity thieves,"
Online liquor delivery company Drizly has reached a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over a data breach that exposed the personal information of its customers. The company has agreed to implement stronger data security measures and undergo regular third-party assessments to ensure compliance with the FTC's standards. This settlement serves as a reminder of the importance of securing sensitive customer information, which is not only a matter of best practice but also an obligation under the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).
