British Airways fined £20m for data breach
British Airways has been fined a record £20m ($26m) for its 2018 data breach. The breach exposed the personal and financial data of 400,000 BA customers. It is the biggest fine ever handed out by the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) but it ended up being considerably lower than the £183m originally reported. The ICO said the economic impact of COVID-19 had been taken into account.
