The airline was concerned about the risk to their business from potential Magecart attacks and wanted to protect their website from client-side data breaches. With 82% of all travel bookings happening online, protecting the airline’s digital presence was a top priority for its executives. Digital skimming and Magecart attacks have targeted several airlines recently including British Airways, Delta Airlines and easyJet. Airlines are a popular target because of the high volume of online transactions. These attacks resulted in clientside data breaches that not only hurt the companies’ brand reputation but also resulted in compliance penalties and lawsuits. British Airways, for example, was fined $230 million by UK regulators for the data breach resulting from the digital skimming attack it suffered in 2018.
