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.
Never have I experienced a company that cared about the customer more than R3 Data Recovery. They have been helpful and friendly from the very first inquiry I made, everyone I talked to being that perfect blend of informative, understanding and helpful.
I truly felt like everyone I talked to was giving me 100% of their time and effort and they wanted to fix the drive as much as I wanted it back. Any bad news they relayed was quickly followed up by potential solutions that they wanted to do.
I had complete faith in everyone involved and I am eternally grateful that I chose R3 Data Recovery. I cannot recommend them enough if you have any kind of drive failure.
