There are many ways in which school security breaches can happen, from information being sent to the wrong person(s) incorrectly, or perhaps without consent, to data being inadvertently accessible online. Schools can also be a target for hackers, given that they will store and process particularly personal sensitive information that can be valuable to criminals.
The impact of school security breaches can be quite significant, given that the information affected could be that for a person in a vulnerable position as a minor. It could include personal and domestic information that the school may need to know about to help with studies, and it may include medical data as well. There may also be information about feedback and problems as part of the students’ education progression.
Ultimately, if information has been misused or exposed due to some form of mistake, error or oversight, that is when a victim could be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation. The best thing to do is to speak to our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now to see if we can help you.
The way in which a minor can pursue a claim for compensation is via what we call a “Litigation Friend”. A Litigation Friend is commonly a parent or guardian, and they can bring the claim on behalf of the child as the instructed person to deal with the matter on their behalf.
If you are a parent or guardian who wishes to pursue a claim on behalf of a child in your care, all you need to do is contact us in the usual way, and we can confirm if we can help you or not.
Social services data breaches can be linked to school data breaches, as the two organisations will often work closely together. There have been many instances when social services have disclosed information to schools, or vice versa, when they should not have done so. Equally, there have been incidents where data has been misused or accidentally leaked when it is being handled between two organisations.
These breaches can be particularly sensitive and damaging, given the nature of the information that social services will store and process. As such, it is important that people know their rights. This can come in the form of pursuing a GDPR compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis with our leading team of expert lawyers.
