Claim compensation for a for a security breach

You could be entitled to claim compensation for a security breach if you have suffered distress or loss as a result of your personal information being misused or exposed. Whilst we will touch on the duties in respect of protection for the GDPR below, it is also important for victims of a data breach to understand that the GDPR is there for them as well. The GDPR can allow someone whose personal information has been misused or exposed in a situation where there has been a breach of data protection law to be able to pursue compensation.

The way that it works is simple. The GDPR can be used to pursue whoever is responsible for a data breach and seek damages for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of personal information. Distress is a kind of “injury to feeling”, so to speak, whereby you can recover damages for the anger, upset, worry, and stress caused by what has happened. Ultimately, there are good reasons why data protection legislation protects our right to privacy. As such, when the law is breached, we know that it can have an impact on the victim. That impact is what you are claiming for and most people will pursue damages for just the distress alone, but you could also seek damages for losses and expenses if these are applicable. For eligible clients, we are able to provide No Win, No Fee legal representation.

The GDPR and the duty of protection

Organisations have an important responsibility to defend against a situation where someone has suffered for a security breach that was avoidable. There are stipulations in law that mean that organisations must deploy practices, policies and procedures to look after the information that they store and process. There is also the duty to make sure that adequate infrastructure is in place to protect systems and servers from external threats such as cyberattacks.

When you pursue a claim for a security breach, it often comes down to a situation where the defendant has failed in the important duties that they have. They may have failed because they are responsible for an error that has occurred, or perhaps because they failed to deploy adequate cybersecurity which then subsequently resulted in hackers gaining access to systems and servers.
