Can you claim compensation for council cyber incidents?

Anyone who has been affected by council cyber incidents could be eligible to claim privacy compensation, and our specialist lawyers may be able to represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis. The GDPR can entitle the victims of council data breaches to claim compensation for any distress that they have suffered from that is caused by the loss of control of their personal information. If you have also suffered any losses or expenses then these can be considered, but they are not essential to making a claim. Most people will pursue damages for the distress alone.

A wealth of experience is what you need for us to be able to represent you to make sure that we can fight for your rights to justice and allow you to recover compensation for what you have had to endure.

Impact of council cyberattacks

The impact of council cyber incidents can be substantial and can cause severe service disruption and outages for people in the affected areas. This can be serious because a lot of people rely on local services for many reasons, so any disruption to normal business could have a massive impact on people’s lives.

Because local authorities store and process such a wealth of personal information, they must also have an important duty to do all they can to protect it. We could be talking about what we may deem as the full range of information, from usual personal contact details to medical information and sensitive domestic data that may be required for social services matters or for meeting the needs of local citizens. We know that hackers do target councils because of the volume and nature of the information that they hold, so the need to protect themselves against the threats of cyberattacks is substantial.

Group action claims for council data breaches

We can form a group action claim for certain council cyber incidents, normally where they affect many people. Most group action claims are where a large amount of people are affected by the same or similar incidents, so one cyberattack that affects hundreds or thousands of people could lead to one group action claim against the council in question.

We do pursue group action cases for council and local authority data breach compensation claims. So far, we have launched over 50 group and multi-party actions for privacy matters, representing thousands of people in England and Wales on a No Win, No Fee basis.
