Life With GDPR: Cathay Pacific Enforcement Action

Thomas Fox
In this episode of Life with GDPR, Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox consider the recently released UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Cathay Pacific Airways Limited fine of £500,000 for failing to protect the security of its customers’ personal data. This is a pre-GDPR case and the fine represents the maximum fine under the ICO’s pre-GDPR powers. The ICO took into particular account the fact that Cathay Pacific failed to follow its own policies and ignored fundamental best practices.
