It’s important to note that any fine and any claim for compensation are dealt with as two separate issues. It’s the role of the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) to issue any GDPR fine to British Airways. What we’re doing is helping victims of the BA breach claim for data breach compensation.

However, one data breach period appears to have partially taken place before GDPR came into force. How does this affect your claim?

experts give catastrophic data breach warning

We’ve said a few times now that the British Airways data hack was preventable. That’s why we launched our legal action for justice last month.

There are a number of reasons as to how it could have been prevented. Aside from the motivator of GDPR that should have triggered a mind-set of change, there were other warning sings too. The Ticketmaster data breach – carried out by the same attackers – sent a clear warning that, arguably, British Airways failed to take heed of. Before the British Airways data hack, we wrote about the targeting of payment systems and how we were just seeing the tip of the iceberg.

But there was also another major warning sign that British Airways appeared to not act on as well.
