What We Can Learn From The Socso Data Breach

Last week, Socso confirmed that their systems, database, and website were breached, after a hacker group posted about the infiltration on an online forum. Since then, CEO Datuk Seri Dr Mohammed Azman Aziz has said a four-pronged response to the cyberattack is being carried out, including an internal forensic investigation. We speak to a cybersecurity expert on the impact of the data breach, how Socso is handling the crisis, and what we can learn about data security from this incident.
