TicketMaster Slapped With $1.65 Million Fine Over 2018 Data Breach

  • In June 2018, Ticketmaster disclosed a data breach that apparently affected only 5% of customers. However, it was a serious breach since it affected both UK customers as well as international users.
  • As the investigations progressed, it became clear that Ticketmaster would have to face a fine according to the EU GDPR. This now looks true since the UK ICO has imposed a fine of £ £1.25million ($1.65 million). According to the details, the breach affected 9.4 million customers across Europe, with 1.5 million belonging to the UK only.
