Have you suffered an Amazon data leak?

debit or credit card details are exposed

If you’ve been the victim of an Amazon data leak, we may be able to help you claim data leak compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The most recent Amazon data leak took place last month, and there wasn’t a great deal of detail released about it. All that was said to victims was that some data had been exposed, and that victims don’t need to take any action. Although this may suggest that the leak was contained, people should always be vigilant. Companies should always ensure to warn people that they may need to take action.

One key element we do understand is that the most recent Amazon data leak reportedly stemmed from an API issue. This is important to know.

Ticketmaster cyber attack may just be the beginning

cyber attack

The recent Ticketmaster cyber attack we’ve launched an action for may just be the beginning as hackers are reportedly ready to attack again.

The Ticketmaster cyber attack was successful because the hackers were able to install malicious code into third-party software that Ticketmaster were using as part of their payment process. Inbenta, the authors of the code, say they didn’t know Ticketmaster were using their code for this purpose, and had they have known, they say they would have recommended against it on the grounds of security issues.

The growing trend of hackers looking to attack third-party code means the huge Ticketmaster cyber attack may well be just the beginning.

Retail cyber attacks and the legal viewpoint

retail cyber attacks

Retail cyber attacks and the legal viewpoint is a simple one: as with any other organisation, retailers must protect their customers’ information.

Yet, in recent times, we’ve witnessed a lot of retail cyber attacks that were entirely preventable, and retailers are an obvious target for cyber-criminals.

Retail cyber security can be a complex matter. With numerous breach points along varying suppliers and across potentially hundreds of thousands of outlets, it’s not the easiest of issues to address, but the legal viewpoint remains that customers data must be protected, or retail cyber attacks will lead to legal action and compensation for victims.

Transparency pays when it comes to retail data protection

cybersecurity issues

According to recent information, transparency pays when it comes to retail data protection as some consumers would pledge to shop more with retailers who are transparent about how they use their data.

Given the volume of data breaches we see in the news these days, consumers are more aware than ever about the importance of data protection and knowing more about how their data is used and shared.

The data about customers being happier to shop more with organisations when there is more transparency over retailer data protection policies is certainly food for thought in today’s globally-competitive market.
