British Airways emphasizes that the company contacts all the victims and advises all the clients, who reckon that this incident could touch them upon, to get in contact with the bank and follow the instructions provided.

At the same time, the head of British Airways claims that the stolen information doesn't include personal data.

In the light of the foregoing, it is necessary to take all reasonable precautions to protect the data.

Thus, if one asks oneself a question ''VPN users: Who are they?'', it can be said that not only an average internet user but a company as well can become its subscriber to protect the data.
