You could be entitled to claim compensation for a recruitment agency data breach. The impact on the victim could be substantial, given the nature of the information that such organisations store and process.
As well as the usual personal contact details, there will also be information required for job hunts and placements, which could include banking information for payments, and sensitive identity documents. It is not unusual at all for recruitment agencies to have your banking information on file, nor is it unusual for them to have copies of passports, driving licences and documents to prove your address. National Insurance numbers and dates of birth are also common to make sure that people they are dealing with are eligible to work in the UK.
The recruitment agency industry is massive and has been for quite some time, and there are huge numbers of people on the books for the various companies around the UK. It only takes one inadvertent disclosure event, or one successful cyberattack, and swathes of very personal and sensitive information could end up exposed.

In a recent recruitment agency data breach, it was reported that Morgan Hunt had apparently suffered a cyberattack, personal data being stolen.
It is understood that Morgan Hunt alerted relevant parties to confirm that there had been an unauthorised third-party access event, leading to some information being accessed and potentially copied.
It is understood that the Morgan Hunt cyberattack occurred this summer, and we have been approached for help in light of the notifications that have been sent out. Data affected could reportedly include not only names and contact details, but also identity and proof documents used for addresses and bank details. In the wrong hands, this kind of information could lead to victims being targeted for fraud and theft.
When it comes to what kind of compensation amount you could be entitled to receive, we will normally assess this based on things such as the nature of the information involved, how much is affected, the context of the breach, and the personal impact on you. As we have outlined above, a recruitment agency data breach could be substantial, given the nature of the information that could end up exposed or misused, such as bank details and identity documents. This is precisely the kind of information that could be used by criminals to exploit people for fraud and theft, so the distress that can be caused when such information has been exposed can be substantial.
Generally speaking, the more a person suffers, the higher the compensation amounts could be. Our average settlement is just over £6,000 per claimant and, when it comes to particularly personal and sensitive information, compensation amounts could be more in a recruitment incident, given the nature of the information affected.
