BA cyber-attack compensation deadline: 12 months to go!

court deadline judge

We’re now just 12 months away from the official BA cyber-attack compensation deadline for the formal Group Litigation Order that has been established.

By order of the High Court of Justice, in October 2018, a formal GLO was put into place. This means that all cases that form as part of this action will be managed as part of the joint proceedings. Our firm has been appointed to the Steering Committee that’s responsible for the overall conduct of the litigation, and the deadline to join was set for 17th January 2021.

You may not be worried about the deadline given how far away it is. You should take heed of it, and there’s really no reason as to why you should delay starting your case.

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.

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.

British Airways GDPR fine and group action were avoidable

data breaches expected to soar with introduction of new gdpr rules

The mammoth British Airways GDPR fine and the group action for compensation we’re on the Steering Committee for were totally avoidable, meaning the airline could have saved themselves a fortune.

Research from HackerOne indicated that a simple Bug Bounty that could have cost less than £10,000.00 may have identified the vulnerabilities that led to the successful 2018 cyber-attack incidents. In fact, such a bounty could also have stopped the Carphone Warehouse, Ticketmaster and TalkTalk hacks as well, it’s understood.

The fact that this was avoidable can help the prospects of succeeding with the BA Group Action, although it’s important to know the difference between the fines and the compensation for victims.
