Airline cyberattacks and data breach claims

Previous data found that cyberattacks on the aviation industry had increased significantly in recent years, with commercial airlines reportedly suffering the heaviest blows. Unfortunately, such rises come as little surprise to us, and will likely not shock many others. Numerous airline cyberattacks in recent years have caused us to become accustomed to this sort of problem.

From British Airways to Air India, we have seen a number of high-profile cyber incidents involving airlines over the past few years, some of which have subsequently resulted in major data breach group actions. Given that aviation companies hold huge quantities of often highly sensitive personal information, it is natural that they are prime targets for hackers seeking to steal information. What can be harder to accept is that airlines keep failing to defend themselves against such attacks.

If you have had your personal data exposed as a result of an airline cyberattack, you may be able to recover compensation for the harm you have been caused.  Our involvement in the group legal actions against both British Airways and easyJet means that we are an expert firm to come to for your data breach claim.
