British Airways system failure over the Bank Holiday weekend probably affected more people than the “Wannacry” hack did.
It will have more compensatory implications due to the number of people affected, the delays in restoring the computer backup systems was not helped due to the IT support being outsourced to India, consequently the backup and restoration systems not being able to restore operations as quickly as any traveller stuck for hours waiting for a flight would like.
The implications in one year’s time is much more salient - GDPR is changing how data protection, data storage, data preservation, data wiping and disaster recovery will be handled for years to come. If there is a “data breach” then the fines are already significant but after June 2018 they become commercially concerning as global companies can be fined up to 4% of global turnover.
R3 Data Recovery were amazing! The service was excellent and Prompt. My daughters memory stick snapped in half with loads of her A-level and BTEC work on it. It was a Sunday evening when the stick broke, I phoned Andy Butler ( who made my daughter and myself feel better with his professionalism and calm advice) and within the next hour I had dropped off the stick at his laboratory - the day after Monday afternoon Andy had e-mailed me to inform me that my daughters work had been recovered. Also a big thank you to the duty engineer Mike Wainwright who had worked on the stick.
