Just ticking regulatory requirement checkboxes isn’t enough, you really need to adopt a risk-based, proactive approach to your security strategy
The recent Cathay Pacific airline data breach, the biggest to hit the airline industry to date, should come as a wakeup call to businesses of all sizes and across all sectors. While we don’t yet know the precise cause of the breach as the investigation is still underway, what we do know is that successful threat actors are persistent by nature and sophisticated in application. Which means that alarm bells should now be sounding to the tune of the ‘reactive compliance-driven blues’ in boardrooms far and wide. If you are serious about your security posture then you really do have to walk the walk instead of just ticking the regulatory requirement checkboxes; you really do need to adopt a risk-based, proactive approach to your security strategy.
