13 Nov 102,209 Filipinos Affected in Cathay Pacific Breach
The National Privacy Commission said last week that Cathay Pacific may not have accurately reported what it knew about its data breach at the time it confirmed unauthorized access, and what the affected data fields are.
The NPC said that it had ordered the Hong Kong airlines to explain within ten days why it should not be held liable for its apparent failure to notify the commission about the breach in a timely fashion. In the order, Cathay Pacific was also told to submit within five days further information on the measures it had taken to address the breach.
It was revealed that around 35,700 Philippine passport numbers and over 100 credit card numbers were compromised in the breach.
