Handling of British Airways Data Breach

Handling of British Airways’ Data Breach
The Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK on Monday revealed its plan to slap British Airways (BA) with a £183.4 million ($230M) fine over a 2018 data breach, one of the ICO’s biggest fines since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. The breach is believed to have impacted 500,000 people, the regulator noted.  The breach, which BA disclosed in September 2018, saw people visiting its website being diverted to a fraudulent site, where details including name, billing address, email address and payment information were harvested.  The data breach highlighted why data strategy and governance is more critical than ever.  Very basic security principles were not instituted, practical steps were missed in securing their data, and processes were not established to safeguard their most sensitive customer data.
Provide a 5-7 page paper (formatted according to APA guidelines) including a minimum of seven journal articles providing an overview of the British Airways data breach, regulations violated, and other similar breaches. Topics to consider in the paper may include:

an overview of the data breach
what data was stolen and at what volume
which security principles and guidelines they missed/violated
what in GDPR did they violate
what could they have done to prevent the issue
what would you do, knowing what you know about data strategy and governance, once you learn of the data breach
what are the critical learnings from the data breach

These topics should be answered at a minimum, but the goal is to provide a detailed analysis of the data breach and tie it to the core principles we have learned up to this point in our class.
A Microsoft Word, APA formatted paper must be submitted and will be checked using TurnitIn for plagiarism.
