British Airways has reached an undisclosed settlement in a case brought by customers and staff affected by the 2018 data breach. The court-appointed law firm in the case, PGMBM, said that those affected by the data leak would receive a confidential settlement following mediation with British Airways. It added that the resolution does not include any admission of liability by British Airways.
Additional commentary in The Register reveals BA paid "around £32m to make the data breach case in the High Court of England and Wales go away."
