BENGALURU: Britain’s data protection watchdog said on Friday it has fined IAG’s British Airways 20 million pounds ($25.85 million) — its biggest such penalty to date — for failing to protect personal and financial details of more than 400,000 of its customers.
“Their failure to act was unacceptable and affected hundreds of thousands of people, which may have caused some anxiety and distress as a result,” the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said of a cyberattack the airline suffered in 2018.
