This doesn’t come as a surprise to us, and we can explain why. Many are labelled as just “human error” incidents, but there can be so much more to it than that.

data breach lawyers

The concept of data breach distress compensation is a relatively new area of law, and one that we’ve been at the forefront of for several years; but what is it, and what do we do?

With more information accessible and stored digitally, it’s more susceptible to being breached.

The result is that data breach incidents have grown astronomically in recent years. As a result, people are suffering; and that’s where we can help.
