The Information Commissioner performs her regulatory functions independently of Government as such I am unable to comment on ongoing investigations or on individual cases.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has been working with EasyJet from the outset to understand how the incident has affected people in the UK. On Tuesday 19 May, NCSC published advice on its website that includes practical advice concerned citizens can follow.

EasyJet have said they have already contacted all 2,208 customers who had their credit cards details accessed. They have also contacted the other 9 million customers who had their email address and travel details accessed.
