The guidance aims to help organisations deal with subject access requests effectively and efficiently. The content of the guidance has been informed by a public consultation, which called on the ICO to provide ‘additional content and examples’ and ‘more support and clarification on some aspects of the law’.

ICO fines British Airways £20m for breach of data protection law
The ICO has fined British Airways (BA) £20m for breaching data protection law which affected approximately 429,612 customers and staff. An ICO investigation found that BA failed to protect the personal and financial details of its customers and staff as it processed a significant amount of personal data without implementing the necessary security measures, and was subsequently subject to a cyber attack during 2018 which remained undetected for over two months. The ICO stated that BA should have identified weaknesses in its security system and should have resolved them with the available security measures. The cyber attack is believed to have potentially gained access to names, addresses, payment card numbers, CVV numbers, usernames, passwords and PINs. The £20m fine is a notable step down from the £183.39m fine the ICO initially intended to impose on BA.
