Risks of scam emails from data breaches

It is not uncommon for people who have been affected by data breaches to receive increased incidents of scam and spam emails. Some of these emails can be attributed to hackers behind cyberattacks, or criminals who have accessed exposed information that could be for sale online.

Anyone who has been affected by a data breach could be entitled to claim compensation now with leading law firm Your Lawyers. We are privacy claims experts, and we may be able to represent you for a claim on No Win, No Fee basis now.

Your legal rights following a data breach

In the wake of a data breach, it can be difficult to know what to do to protect yourself and take action in light of the harm you may have been caused. As leading specialists in data breach claims, Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – can advise you of your legal rights in the event that your data is compromised or exposed.

A breach of data protection law can be any incident in which a third-party data controller fails to protect private information in a way that breaches their legal obligations. In accordance with the GDPR, all businesses and organisations are required to use appropriate organisational and technical measures to keep personal information secure, and failing to do so can leave a third party liable for any harm caused to their data subjects.

Data breach claims still represent a developing area of compensation law, but Your Lawyers has been representing clients for data privacy matters since 2014. Some firms have only just begun branching out into data breach claims, but we have developed the expertise to bring our claimants the compensation they deserve.

Fraudsters stealing millions following data breaches

Data exposure can cause severe stress and anxiety to those affected, and it can also have a material impact. Many people may not be aware of just how close the cause-and-effect relationship between data breaches and online fraud can be. In fact, there are fraudsters stealing millions every year with the help of stolen information.

Due to the developments of the digital age, technology can now provide a means for fraudsters to expand their practices and develop more sophisticated ways of stealing from victims. Their greatest asset is arguably the wealth of data stores kept by many modern businesses, who take extensive personal details from their employees and customers. If the security of this information becomes compromised in any way, it could equip fraudsters with personal details that allow them to easily and effectively target their victims.

Your Lawyers, as leading, specialist Data Leak Lawyers, has represented many clients who have fallen victim to fraud in the wake of data breaches. If you have been impacted in this way, you may be eligible to claim compensation from those who exposed your information to misuse. Simply contact our team for more information on your potential claim.

Data breach exposes customer billing information

Data breaches can come with a range of different security risks, some of which can make victims vulnerable to financial loss. When a data breach exposes customer billing information, this risk can be even more pronounced, as the details could give cybercriminals direct access to credit cards or bank accounts.

As such, it is highly important that companies store customer payment information securely, and only retain details where absolutely necessary, or where the customer has given express permission for the information to be recorded. If they fail in any of these duties, they could be at fault should an unauthorised third-party gain access to this information.

If you have had any payment information exposed in a data breach, you will probably know how stressful it can be to have the threat of financial crime looming over you. While it can be hard to trace the perpetrators of online theft and fraud, it can be less difficult to punish the data controller responsible for exposing your information. A data breach claim can give victims the opportunity to see that justice is done.
