In the past two years, logistics and aviation have had their fair share of cyber-attacks. Recently, Cathay Pacific became the latest name on the list of victims. But this report from the South China Morning Post suggests the carrier should be applauded for the way it dealt with the attack. Yes, it took more than half a year to inform its customers of the breach, but where it stands up – or so says Richard Harris – is that within mere hours of the announcement all those affected by the attack had been informed of what information had been stolen. This, he says, compares favourably to the three years it took Yahoo. “Is speed really more important than careful investigation when the hackers can move at the speed of light? I felt peace of mind in knowing the full limit of the breach soon after the announcement.”
