My hot take..

We should be happy finally a senior manager is being legally taken to task over their conduct after finding out about a breach.Perhaps it will encourage the appropriate response and oh I don't know responsibility that comes with the inflated pay cheque.

It's likely that the management culture is in many ways just as guilty but you can't change that without changing the management mindset of each individual involved. If they think they are PERSONALLY on the hook for these sorts of shenanigans, it's far less likely to happen.
