Outsourcer data breaches and claiming privacy compensation

Outsourcer data breaches can lead to significant volumes of very personal and sensitive information being exposed or misused. In many cases, the volume of data can be significant because outsourcing companies are used to working on behalf of a number of organisations across multiple sectors. Because of this, the kind of information that could be affected could be incredibly personal and sensitive, which means that the impact on the victims can be substantial.

When it comes to pursuing damages for outsourcer data breaches, you may be able to bring your claim against the outsourcing company or the organisation that is using the outsourcing company. In theory, liability could be placed on either organisation involved because both have an important duty in accordance with the GDPR to protect the information that they store and process. However, for you, all you need to know is that you should be able to pursue a claim if your data has been misused or exposed as a result of a breach of the GDPR.

Recent incident: Capita cyberattack

There have been many outsourcer data breaches in recent years. One of the most recent ones that took place this year involved outsourcing giant Capita being hit by a cyberattack.

As a result of this breach, it was understood that staff were unable to access a number of systems and servers and it has later suggested that some data may have been accessed by the criminals behind the attack.

This is a particularly concerning cyberattack given that Capita is such a huge name in outsourcing, including for a lot of government work. The company has been investigating the matter carefully to try to understand what happened and what information may have been affected. Either way, the Capita cyberattack is certainly a very concerning event given the particularly personal and sensitive nature of the information they will store and process.

If you have received confirmation that your personal information has been misused or exposed as a result of this cyberattack, you could be eligible to pursue a claim for damages. Please do not hesitate to contact our team for free, no-obligation legal help here now.
