Urban Massage, a London-based massage startup, suffered a data breach recently. Among the records were allegations of sexual misconduct by clients towards workers.

But, many records also included allegations of sexual misconduct by clients — such as asking for “massage in genital area” and requesting “sexual services from therapist.” Others were marked as “dangerous,” while others were blocked due to “police enquiries.” Each complaint included a customer’s personally identifiable information — including their name, address and postcode and phone number.

Now that GDPR is in effect Urban Massage could face harsh financial penalties, up to 4% of its global revenue.
