British Airways faces record-breaking GDPR fine

The UK’s data watchdog has announced plans to fine the airline British Airways a record £183 million over last year’s data breach. The breach lead to the leak of credit card information, names, addresses, travel booking details, and logins for around 500,000 customers. The fine would be the largest the watchdog has ever issued.

GDPR is going to/is killing innovation and eventually large businesses too, and in the end I doubt people will benefit from it. Like B. Franklin stated... Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both. He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.

The largest they've ever issued. Against a British company. After their actions using carbon credits to try and destroy our steel industry out of pure badness, I think this is another attempt to extract as much cash as possible and damage our industry. They're just monumental cunts. Leave with no deal and don't pay a penny.
