When data protection is too late after a cyberattack

It is too late to treat data protection with the seriousness that is required after a cyberattack has taken place, and information has already been exposed.

Despite the obviousness of this, and the stringent GDPR legislation in place, too many organisations are still failing to take action to stop a cyberattack rather than taking action after it has happened. The result is that many people can suffer when they lose control over their personal information which ends up in the hands of criminals.

Anyone affected by a data breach could be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation with our leading privacy claims experts now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

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.
