CYBER SECURITY AND DATA PROTECTION

Personal Data Breach Claims

Cyber attacks are an ever increasing threat to the security of an individual’s personal data through loss, theft, destruction or misuse. Such incidents can be very stressful knowing that your personal data may be in the hands of criminal gangs and fraudsters intent on using your data to extract ransom payments from the organisation who failed to protect your personal information or simply offering your data for sale over the dark web for use in identity theft or other financial frauds. We have expertise in using the data protection laws to help you recover just and fair compensation if you are the innocent victim of a personal data breach.

Breach of Confidence and Privacy

Every organisation that processes personal information on or about you has a legal obligation to ensure that this remains safe and secure and is not disclosed or shared with any other organisation or person unless there is a lawful reason to do so.  Lots of organisations breach their duty of confidence and privacy through carelessness, ignorance of the law or sometimes deliberately for financial gain. We can advise you on whether your data protection rights have been abused and identify the best strategy for recovering effective resolution and compensation.
