A report published by Hong Kong's Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data found that airline Cathay Pacific lacks sufficient data protection and the shortcomings were the main cause of its 2018 data breach, Reuters reports. PCPD Stephen Kai-yi Wong pointed to the airline's failure to identify common holes in its data protection and implement measures to fix the lapses. “Cathay adopted a lax attitude towards data governance, which fell short of the expectation of its affected passengers and the regulator,” Wong said. Meanwhile, Singapore's Personal Data Protection Commission has fined two companies for violating protection obligations under the Personal Data Protection Act. Ncode Consultant was fined $30,000, while Option Gift received a $4,000 penalty.
