We’re understandably receiving queries and concerns relating to the British Airways security breach. We thought it would be helpful to provide some basic advice in case you, your family or your staff are at risk from this breach.

  1. If your BA account password is one you use elsewhere, change it on all the accounts where you use it. As a general rule, password re-use is not recommended.
  2. Attackers may use your personal details to target you with emails, texts and calls. As always, be suspicious of unsolicited requests for your personal or financial details.
  3.  If your financial data was compromised, be vigilant on your bank accounts. If you notice any unauthorised transactions, notify your bank or card company.
  4. If you have credit card information stored in your account on BA, cancel the card and request a new one from your bank.

You can report any suspicious activity or fraud to ActionFraud online at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

Please contact CCS if you have any further queries or require cyber assistance.
