"The challenge is actually how we can introduce and implement the right solution efficiently in all countries without really implementing different solutions," Halim says.

"In a global company like the one I work for now, the aim is to implement something globally, and we use the same solution in other countries because otherwise it does not make sense to implement a different solution in each country."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Halim also discusses:

  • The highlights of the Indonesian data protection law;
  • Who should bear the responsibility for breach - the CISO or CEO;
  • How to approach the challenge of managing regulations in different countries.

Halim has more than 12 years of experience in the fields of technology and cybersecurity. Before joining Sodexo, he was the information security lead at AXA Group in Indonesia.
