HKEx attack incident

When asked for comments onf HKEx hacking incident, the Financial Secretary Mr John Tsang said he disagreed with suggestions that the website was not secure enough and added that many large organisations around the world have had their sites hacked into.

Oh my God, this is a poor attitude. If top Hong Kong government official has such view or mindset, there is no hope for Hong Kong to maintain a higher cyber security standard.  HKEx runs some mission critical systems for the finance market, it should have emergency plans and backup measures to minimize the impact of large scale cyber attacks. Besides, these plans and measures should have been drilled on a regular basis to test system and human responses. HKEx should disclose what actions they made after discovering the hacking.

What the fuck has Hong Kong learnt from the HKEx attack case.
