The official BA data breach group action

BA data breach

Here’s some information about the official BA data breach group action. There is only one formal Group Litigation Order (GLO) action, which is important for people to understand.

The primary reason as to why we’re discussing this is because there are a lot of law firms saying a lot of different things when it comes to data breach cases. Several are claiming to be “the experts” and claiming that they “lead the field”, but it’s vital to look beneath these soundbites to understand who you’re really dealing with. And since the British Airways GLO was formally given the go-ahead by Mr Justice Warby in October, many more lawyers are now getting involved.

Here’s some vital information for you.

Data breaches in 2019: has anything changed?

new gdpr rules for international data transfer

As we have seen in recent years, there have been a large number of data breaches in 2019, and we’re wondering when the trends will change.

In an increasingly digitalised world, there are now more and more doorways open for hackers to break down. There are also more ways that data can be accidentally exposed with the greater use and reliance of technology. This was why the introduction of the GDPR last year was so important, yet despite the new laws, have we seen any positive changes?

We would have expected far greater improvements than what we have seen so far.

The British Airways Data Event Group Litigation

The British Airways Data Event Group Litigation was formally established after a hearing that took place on 4th October 2019.

The purpose of this action – which is a formal Group Litigation Order (GLO) – is for the common issues for victims affected by the 2018 BA cyber-attacks to be argued as one. There’s little point in arguing each individual case when the issues are so common, so if we can get the common issues resolved, it then becomes a matter of individual compensation.

We know that it can be somewhat confusing to know where to turn when you need legal advice and representation. Here’s some advice about the official GLO that may be useful for you.
