GDPR fine of £183m likely for British Airways

The Information Commissioner’s Office (the UK’s privacy watchdog) announced its plan to slap British Airways with a record £183 million (238 million €).

In September 2018 BA disclosed a breach which affected 500,000 people where visitors on its website were diverted to a fraudulent website and personal/sensitive details including name, billing address, email address and payment information were harvested.
