British Airways are facing a £183 million fine after a data breach in 2018 where the personal data, including names, addresses, credit card numbers and travel details of approximately 500,000 customers was breached.
This will be the largest fine ever imposed by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
The recently introduced GDPR rules allow a company to be fined up to a maximum of 4% of of its turnover.
British Airways has 28 days to appeal.
