Second anniversary of the discovery of the Virgin Media data breach

We are around the second anniversary mark of the discovery of the Virgin Media data breach that was first revealed in the media in March 2020.

Two years on, we are now representing thousands of claimants – all on a No Win, No Fee basis – as part of our Virgin Media Group Action for compensation.

You still have time to sign up for a legal case, but do not delay any further – we are already at an advanced stage for many of the clients that we represent, and there can be cut-off dates imposed by courts for joining an action.

Your legal rights following a data breach

In the wake of a data breach, it can be difficult to know what to do to protect yourself and take action in light of the harm you may have been caused. As leading specialists in data breach claims, Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – can advise you of your legal rights in the event that your data is compromised or exposed.

A breach of data protection law can be any incident in which a third-party data controller fails to protect private information in a way that breaches their legal obligations. In accordance with the GDPR, all businesses and organisations are required to use appropriate organisational and technical measures to keep personal information secure, and failing to do so can leave a third party liable for any harm caused to their data subjects.

Data breach claims still represent a developing area of compensation law, but Your Lawyers has been representing clients for data privacy matters since 2014. Some firms have only just begun branching out into data breach claims, but we have developed the expertise to bring our claimants the compensation they deserve.

Fraudsters stealing millions following data breaches

Data exposure can cause severe stress and anxiety to those affected, and it can also have a material impact. Many people may not be aware of just how close the cause-and-effect relationship between data breaches and online fraud can be. In fact, there are fraudsters stealing millions every year with the help of stolen information.

Due to the developments of the digital age, technology can now provide a means for fraudsters to expand their practices and develop more sophisticated ways of stealing from victims. Their greatest asset is arguably the wealth of data stores kept by many modern businesses, who take extensive personal details from their employees and customers. If the security of this information becomes compromised in any way, it could equip fraudsters with personal details that allow them to easily and effectively target their victims.

Your Lawyers, as leading, specialist Data Leak Lawyers, has represented many clients who have fallen victim to fraud in the wake of data breaches. If you have been impacted in this way, you may be eligible to claim compensation from those who exposed your information to misuse. Simply contact our team for more information on your potential claim.

Billions of leaked records – data exposure in 2021

According to a recent report, over five billion personal records have already been exposed in 2021. A number of significant data leak incidents have contributed to the billions of leaked records, showing how cybercriminals are often able to steal information in large quantities.

In many cases, the theft of records can be facilitated by the negligence or errors of data controllers. Despite being required by law to impose strong cybersecurity defences, vulnerabilities are often neglected and left open for cybercriminals to take advantage of.

Your Lawyers, as leading specialists in data protection law, have seen data controllers fail to meet their responsibilities on many occasions, and the consequences can be devastating for those affected. It is not always possible to undo the impact when control of your personal information is lost, but making a data protection breach compensation claim can allow you to hold a third-party organisation accountable for any failure to protect your personal data. In a time in which so many records are being leaked, our work has never been more important.

Scammers claiming to work for Virgin Media – breach victims to be wary

Scammers claiming to work for Virgin Media have been reportedly contacting elderly residents in more than one location in the UK. With cybercrime at a peak due to the coronavirus pandemic, these phone scams are just one example among many methods used by fraudsters in an attempt to extract personal data, particularly financial details.

There is no evidence to suggest that the scammers are linked to the Virgin Media data breach of last March, which saw the personal data of 900,000 UK residents become exposed due to the failure to secure a company database. However, many data breach victims do suffer attacks from scammers and fraudsters who, equipped with their personal data, can trick their targets into thinking that they are honest representatives of reputable companies. This is why we feel it is important to cover this issue in the context of the data breach that we represent people for.

As leading data breach specialists, we represent victims of data breaches to recover the compensation they deserve. When it comes to data protection, carelessness is unacceptable given the harmful risks it exposes victims to, so contact us if you think you may have a compensation claim to make.
