cyberattacks affecting employees

Cyberattacks affecting employees

When cyberattacks hit businesses and other organisations, it is often the impact on customers that is considered, given that the exposure of their information can cause serious implications, both for them and for the reputation of the hacked organisation. Yet cyberattacks affecting employees can be equally severe, as their employers often hold extensive personal information about them.

As an employee, a data breach by your employer can put you in an uncomfortable position, leaving you unsure about what action you can take. It may feel difficult to hold your employer accountable for a cybersecurity incident but, if your data has been compromised by their actions or inaction, you may be able to make a data breach compensation claim.

At Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – we have been representing claimants for matters relating to data privacy since 2014, honing our expertise in this still-developing area of law. We strongly believe that anyone who has been affected by a data breach should be able to access legal representation. If your privacy has been compromised by a data controller, contact us to receive free, no-obligation advice about your potential claim.

The risks of reusing passwords

As a standard recommendation of IT professionals and security specialists, many of us will be aware that it is advisable to use a range of passwords, but we believe that the importance of this advice cannot be understated. Many studies have shown that people continue to risk their data security by reusing passwords across their online accounts, and this is dangerous.

There is now a whole subsection of cybercrime built around the theft and misuse of account credentials, so it is vital that consumers do not put themselves at  greater risk by reusing passwords.

Personal information is a highly valuable resource to cybercriminals, and passwords can be particularly profitable, given that they can sometimes unlock private accounts containing further personal information. A password is meant to be a key form of protection, so why are we compromising this security technique by reusing passwords?

Data snooping attacks

Data snooping attacks can represent one of the many methods that cybercriminals use to steal private information. Snooping methods are commonly used to steal data from insecure networks and other systems. Sometimes, data snooping is even used by well-known companies seeking to extract information relating to their users.

In the digital age, personal data is a valuable commodity, such that there is a large underground network of hackers and fraudsters who aggregate data for malicious purposes. With the risks growing and growing, third-party organisations must aim to safeguard the information that is under their protection.

In fact, all UK data controllers are legally bound to comply with the rules of the GDPR, meaning that they can be held liable when a data breach occurs. If you have been affected by a data breach, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Any victims can contact us for free, no-obligation advice about their potential claims.

Greater Manchester Police data breach

Derbyshire police officer evades dismissal over data protection breach

A constable at Derbyshire Police has recently faced a misconduct hearing over allegations of unlawfully accessing records of a police incident and then sharing a photo of the file with colleagues.

Although the officer’s actions contravened policing standards and data protection law, he has escaped dismissal and will be allowed to continue serving at Derbyshire Police.

Regardless of the verdict of the hearing, a breach such as this should never have occurred at all. Testaments to the officer’s reportedly “excellent” work as an officer do not erase his culpability for what has been regarded as an incredibly reckless action. As an organisation with access to extensive personal data, the police service has a vital duty to be rigorous in data protection and we should all feel safe that our information with them is secure. Our trust in the police should never be abused.
