£20 million GDPR fine for British Airways

British Airways has been fined £20 million for the data breach in 2018 that affected 500,000 customers.

The ICO had originally levied a fine of £183 million but said it has been reduced to take COVID-19 into account. It is still the largest fine levied by the ICO, and may signpost the trend for future data breaches and other infringements of data protection law. The BBC article has some good analysis, available here.
