The No Win, No Fee Equifax data breach compensation action we launched in 2017 is still going strong, and we’re still accepting new cases.
If you’ve yet to sign-up for an Equifax data breach claim, have a read of our advice and get the case started as soon as you can.
In terms of where we are with the cases, we’re continuing to act for a large group of victims claiming for data breach compensation. The legal action is still ongoing, but with the action now being live since 2017, we’re urging anyone who has yet to join to do so ASAP.
We’ve been stating that the Equifax cyber breach was entirely preventable since we launched our legal action for compensation last year.
Equifax failed to patch a known security vulnerability. On top of that, their staff failed to identify the ongoing vulnerability. To make things worse, they didn’t even spot the data being lifted for months and months.
Although we’ve known this for a while, it’s good to see the same statements from external reports. Unsurprisingly, another report has highlighted this important fact. It’s a fact that means we’re confident in securing compensation in the legal action we’ve launched.
The Forest of Dean Council selling data to Equifax means that residents of the area may be affected by the Equifax data breach scandal.
We’re already acting for a large number of victims of the Equifax data breach since we launched our legal action last year. Although Equifax has been fined the maximum allowed under the old rules by the ICO, our legal action is for compensation for victims. This is separate to the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) penalty for breaching the law.
We, of course, cannot go into detail about who we’re acting for with our legal action. What we can say though is that, based on recent news from Gloucestershire Live, a large number of Forest of Dean residents may be affected by the Equifax data breach.
The way forward for justice for the victims of the Equifax cyber attack is with legal action against the credit referencing giants.
We launched our legal action for justice last year when news of the huge cyber attack hit the press. We’re now acting for a large group of victims claiming compensation for the cyber attack. With the punishments issued to Equifax being somewhat small so far, victims should know that they are entitled to justice through our legal action.
If you’ve yet to join the legal action, sign up now. This really is the way forward to ensure justice is served!

We’re already representing a large number of victims as part of a group legal action we’re pursuing. Although the breach took place in 2017, and we have an established claimant group, it’s not too late to join the action.
A year on from the huge Equifax cybersecurity incident, we’re still only now seeing the results of investigations and criminal proceedings. The civil case for data breach compensation that we’re pursuing is also rolling on.
The Equifax ICO fine was welcome news, although victims may need clarity on their rights for compensation as well as understanding the fine itself.
The Equifax ICO fine was the maximum allowed under the rules that came before the GDPR. Had the incident have occurred in the post-GDPR era, Equifax could have faced fines amounting to millions.
The fine itself is separate to any compensation claim a victim is entitled to make. We launched our legal action last year and it’s not too late to join if you’ve yet to sign-up. Read on for more information about how the fine was issued as well as victims’ rights to compensation.
