TalkTalk chief executive Dido Harding has admitted that the firm has major “lessons to learn” after the breach on its systems in October. “I’m not going to pretend that I think TalkTalk got everything right,” Harding told the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, which has launched an inquiry into the incident. “Clearly, you have to look back with the benefit of hindsight and say ‘If I had the time again would I have done more on security knowing what we know today?’. I think the only logical conclusion you can reach is of course. Would that have prevented the attack? I don’t know.” Harding told committee chairman Jesse Norman that she accepted responsibility for the breach as the head of TalkTalk.
