The importance of the recent provisional British Airways and Marriott fines that have been issued for breaches of GDPR cannot be understated. And our action for compensation is important for victims as well.
The record-setting levels of the fines that have been issued show that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is deadly serious when it comes to GDPR compliance. With the ability for fines to be set at 4% of an origination’s global annual turnover, financial penalties that can be issued by the regulator can be significant.
BA’s fine – which they are understood to be contesting – has been initially set at £183m, and the provisional Marriott fine is at £99m. These are clear and substantial punishments. When it comes to the victims whose data has been exposed, our action for compensation is the way forward for justice.
