No Win, No Fee cyber theft compensation claims
We can represent victims for cyber theft compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. If your information has been exposed or misused as a result of a cyber incident, you could be entitled to bring a claim against the organisation responsible for the data.
It’s not an excuse to simply blame cybercriminals. All organisations have a legal duty to protect the data they hold, which means having adequate defences in place to stop hackers from getting access to valuable information. When an organisation fails to protect the data they store and process, a victim can be entitled to claim against them.
When you launch a legal case, you can normally claim for:
- General Damages: for any distress and suffering caused by the loss of control of your personal information;
- Special Damages: for any losses and expenses. This can include money stolen from compromised accounts.
The final data breach compensation pay-out can then be calculated based on one or both factors above. However, a recent court ruling has paved the way for people to claim for simply being the victim of a breach in any event.
We may see increasing cyber theft compensation claims as the number of successful hacks continues to rise.
Many of the dozens of data breach group and multi-party actions we’re involved with have arisen from data being stolen in cyberattacks. Despite the rising threats and the clear duty that the GDPR places on organisations, many are still failing to take their responsibilities seriously.
It comes down to all manner of things. Organisations and their leaders don’t seem concerned enough about the threats. There’s still a lack of training and knowledge internally for employees to know how to help ensure data is safe, and still not enough use of external experts to protect information. There’s a lack of planning in some organisations in terms of defending against attacks and what to do if they become a target.
All this means that the doors are open for hackers to exploit.
