Cyber hack compensation claims

Cyber hack compensation claims are one of the more common types of cases that we represent people for, particularly when it comes to group and multi-party actions.

You can be entitled to claim damages for any distress, suffering, loss of amenity, and for any financial losses as well. Importantly, you don’t have to have suffered an actual financial loss to be able to claim. The mere fact that your information has been hacked can be enough for you to claim for the distress element alone.

Our lawyers are fighting for justice in dozens of different group cases, and many of them have stemmed from cyberattacks.

Increasing volumes of claims

We’re probably going to see more and more cyber hack compensation claims as information continues to be digitalised.

There are now more doorways than ever that can be broken down by cybercriminals. With wider networks, more remote working, more employee access to servers, greater connectivity, and the growth of the Internet of Things and smart technology, there are so many ways that data can be stolen.

I heard over summer that the volume of cyberattacks in the first quarter of the UK amounted to one every 50 seconds. Such a damning statistic highlights the very real dangers we face in the digital world!

Group cyber hack compensation claims

Group and multi-party cyber hack compensation claims can be really common. Usually, when an organisation is targeted, it’s more than just one person’s data that’s exposed or stolen.

It can be hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and even millions of people affected in one single event. One of the most recent ones is the BA Group Action that we’ve been appointed to the Steering Committee for, and that affected around 500,000 people.

The Equifax hack saw millions of records accessed, as did the Marriott breach that has resulted in a provisional ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) fine in the sum of £99m.

What people can do is bring their claims together to form a Group Litigation Order (GLO), which is what has happened this month in the British Airways Group Action. All victims need to do is sign-up for a case and join the action to be a part of any settlement that can then take place.
