The ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) has issued a maximum Dixons Carphone data breach fine in the sum of £500,000.00.
As the breach period was prior to the introduction of the GDPR, they have escaped fines that could have hit hundreds of millions of pounds under the new rules. But the level of the fine that has been issued reflects the severity of this breach that resulted in the personal information for some 14 million people being compromised. It also led to the details for 5.6 million payment cards being exposed as well.
We’re representing victims for this breach and have been doing for a number of years since news of it broke a couple of years ago.
