Letters and notifications have been sent out following the Aspen Healthcare data breach that is understood to have been identified on 14th March 2022. According to instructions that have been provided to us, the incident – classed as a security breach – arises from a phishing attack on the account of a senior member of the finance team.
It is understood that the attack took place on 22nd February 2022 and resulted in the emails, email folders and the contact list of the breached account being accessed. Aspen Healthcare has looked into who could be affected and what information may have been exposed, and they have identified that information such as the following may have been compromised:
The usual kind of advice and recommendations have been made in respect of what people should do if they are affected by the data breach. These include security precautions and taking extra care, as the risk of being targeted by criminals may now be significant.
We can only assume that the phishing attack on the compromised account was a case of something like a suspicious link being clicked that has then resulted in the access event that has caused the information exposure. Until investigations are completed, we can only speculate, but this is typically how it happens.
You could be entitled to claim compensation for a data protection breach at work. It appears that the Aspen Healthcare data breach has affected employee information as per the instructions that we have received as part of the legal action that we are taking.
In this kind of incident, we will aim to hold the organisation vicariously liable for any errors on the part of an employee. This means that any negligence or mistake by an employee can fall onto the employer who must then settle a legal case where we can establish liability. Although we do not yet have the finer details as to how this happened, we believe that there are prospects of being able to succeed with the legal action that we are taking, and we are able to assist eligible victims affected by the breach on a No Win, No Fee basis.
The data breach may have also caused exposure of data for others outside the organisation as well. If it has, any other victims who have been affected could also be eligible to claim.
If you have been affected by the Aspen Healthcare data breach, you could be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.
