Regulators fined British Airways more than $25 million Friday for allegedly bungling a massive data breach that affected more than 400,000 people.

The airline failed to implement security measures that could have prevented the June 2018 cyberattack that caused the breach, which potentially exposed the personal data of some 429,612 British Airways customers and staff, the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office said Friday...

The hacker who attacked British Airways may have had access to the names, addresses and credit card information for some 244,000 customers, regulators said. The attack may have also exposed usernames and passwords for the airline’s employee and administrator accounts along with usernames personal identification numbers for more than 600 “Executive Club” accounts, officials said.

British Airways could have taken several inexpensive steps to prevent the risk of such an attack, such as limiting access to applications and protecting accounts with “multi-factor authentication,” officials said.

Well deserved when you can't protect your customers. I hope they won't file for bankruptcy citing pandemic.
