Cyber Attack on easyJet will fetch £18 Billion compensation to customers

The Cyber Attack which took place on the EasyJet database in January 2020 might fetch the customers of the airline services provider £2000 as compensation. Highly placed sources suggest that over 9 million customers who were impacted by the data breach might get the financial compensation if all goes well as per the law and through proper channels.

 

Cybersecurity Insiders learned that the London based budget airliner identified the cyber incident in the first month of this year and notified it to the Information Commissioner’s Office at that time. But failed to notify its customers and instead, it waited almost 4 months to notify its customers i.e in May 2020.

 

Privacy advocates argue that the leaked details include personal travel patterns of those who traveled through easyJet in the past year which includes sensitive information such as email addresses, full names, travel data, departure dates, and arrival dates along with booking dates.

 

Under the article 82 of EU General Data Protection Regulation aka GDPR, all those who were impacted will have been financially compensated and so International Law firm PGMBM has filed a ‘Class Action’ suit against the airliner which could yield £2000 compensation(a total of £18 billion) to the impacted customers for causing distress, inconvenience, annoyance, and loss of control over their personal information which could be used by hackers in phishing and spam campaigns.

 

Tom Goodhead, the Managing partner of PGMBM has confirmed the news and added in the statement that the steal of monumental data is a terrible failure of EasyJet and could lead to serious consequences shortly.

 

NOTE- All those who have been affected in the EasyJet cyber-attack, can join the claim on a “no-win, no-fee” basis at theeasyjetclaim.com
