ICO plans to fine IAG $229.78 million for British Airways data theft
“We are surprised and disappointed in this initial finding from the ICO... British Airways responded quickly to a criminal act to steal customers’ data,” British Airways Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alex Cruz, said.
“We have found no evidence of fraud/fraudulent activity on accounts linked to the theft.”
IAG said it would defend the airline’s position “vigorously”, including by making any necessary appeals. ■
