Doing business with Asia? Then worry more about security

It's shameful to admit to being hacked in many countries.

It needs to be made even more shameful to be caught covering things up.

The way this was addressed for Japan was to start notifying senior management instead of the IT departments - they'd come down on the BOFH-wannabes like a tonne of bricks (partly because they have personal legal liability in such cases)

It's probably a matter of doing the same in other countries. Lower level manglement has a tendency to cover up bad things to save losing face with senior managlement, but in many cases senior manglement is _extremely_ sensitive to bad publicity.
