Cyberattack compensation: when can you claim?

cyberattack compensation

When can you make a claim for cyberattack compensation? How can you hold an organisation to account that has been breached? How can we help you on a No Win, No Fee basis?

These are common questions when it comes to cyberattack compensation cases. Many may think that the only way you could claim is to sue those responsible for the attack – i.e. the hackers. This isn’t really a feasible option, but you can be eligible to claim compensation against the organisation that has been attacked. They have an important duty to protect themselves and your information, so if they have fallen short, you could be eligible for a case.

Data protection is the law. The GDPR puts a duty on organisations to take reasonable steps to protect the information that they store and process. If they fail to uphold this duty, they can be negligent.

NHS ransomware attacks: rights for victims

NHS ransomware attacks

Victims of NHS ransomware attacks can be entitled to claim data breach compensation with our expert team on a No Win, No Fee basis today.

Attacks against public sectors can be common because cybercriminals do target what they deem to be weaker systems, and this includes the NHS. In 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack specifically targeted older and more outdated systems that may not be up to date, and the NHS was hit hard. There’s a trove of incredibly personal and sensitive data that the NHS is responsible for, which is another reason as to why it’s a target.

It’s the government’s responsibility to ensure that the NHS is fully protected against cyberattacks by properly funding our national healthcare service. For victims of a successful cyberattack, their rights are enshrined in law, and it’s important that we address this.
