Global air transport data giant SITA has confirmed a data breach involving passenger data.

Timothy Chiu, Vice President of Marketing for K2 Cyber Security, commented:
“NIST added specific requirements around application security.
The SITA breach is a good reminder that it is not just your own organization’s security that is mission critical, the security of your third party partners and suppliers is just as important.”
