Poorly handled breach has significant impact on Cathay Pacific

After over five months of being aware of a major breach (impacting approximately 9.4 million customers), Cathay Pacific finally reports it to authorities.

Significant backlash from HK authorities, other Regulators outside HK (including EU, Australia) and most importantly customers, will have a long lasting impact on trust and reputation of the company.

BEING PREPARED as best as possible with a well planned and well understood Data Breach Notification Plan is paramount to minimising damage when a breach occurs.
