Barristers at Serle Court instructed in relation to GDPR group action against easyJet

David Blayney QC and Sophie Holcombe are instructed by PGMBM in relation to the easyJet data breach involving around 9 million of their customers, which was announced by easyJet last month. 

In May this year, easyJet customers received an email titled ‘Notice of cyber security incident’ informing them that the airline had been the target of a cyber-attack.  Customers’ names, email addresses, and travel details relating to easyJet flights or easyJet holidays booked between 17th October 2019 and 4th March 2020 had been accessed by unauthorised persons.  Some 2,208 individuals also had their credit card details stolen, including the three-digit security code – known as the CVV number.

Under Article 82 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) customers have a right to compensation for financial loss, inconvenience, distress, annoyance, and loss of control of data. 

David and Sophie will assist PGMBM in seeking a group litigation order to ensure that the affected customers can pursue compensation against easyJet for the exposure of their confidential personal data.
