Coronavirus contact tracing data breaches and general security issues are at the forefront of our minds right now. As a leading firm of data breach lawyers, we are concerned.

There are still a lot of questions over the use of the system that has already faced a great deal of controversy so far. As the UK tries to reduce the risk of coronavirus, how does contact tracing work and is my data safe? Is there any reason to be particularly concerned about how information will be used and stored with the system? Given how personal and sensitive medical data is, how real are the risks?

Unfortunately, recent media reports suggest that information misuse is already an issue. Given how common medical data breach compensation claims are, we are not surprised.

But people do need to be careful, and some apps will be more secure than others. It’s a perfect opportunity for scammers to try to muscle their way in to get hold of sensitive information too.

So, should we be concerned, what may happen if an app is breached, and what can we do to help people?
