Heavy penalties continue to be levied on companies that fail to ensure the data security of their customers.
Facebook, which failed to provide the data privacy of its child users, has been fined $ 700 million in recent years, and now British Airways, the British airline, has been fined for hacking.
Either protect your client or punish him
The British company, which became difficult when hackers broke into the company’s database and stole the data of its customers, was fined 20 million pounds by The Information Commissioner’s office (ICO), the UK’s BTK.
In fact, the fine was expected to be £ 189m in 2019 when the investigation was opened, but the ICO appears to have shown mercy to British Airways when airlines start to risk sinking because of the pandemic.
