Ticketmaster fined £1.25m over personal data breach

Ticketmaster has been fined £1.25m for failing to keep the personal data of millions of customers secure.

The online events ticket seller failed to put “appropriate security measures in place” to prevent a cyber-attack on a chat-bot installed on its online payment page, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK said.

The breach potentially affected 9.4million customers across Europe. As a result, 60,000 payment cards belonging to Barclays Bank customers were subjected to fraud, and another 6,000 cards were replaced by Monzo bank after suspected fraud.
