There is no ignoring the increasing dangers of ransomware attacks which continue to be particularly prevalent as society continues to become more digitised. In many ways, the modern thief is no longer breaking into houses wearing balaclavas, carrying a “swag bag”. Instead, they are sitting at computer desks and trying to break into systems and servers to steal information or hold organisations to ransom. The lucrative business to hold organisations to ransom when their systems are locked down can mean that many organisations are tempted to pay a demand so they can free their systems and continue to operate. The cost of being unable to operate can be substantial.
Is it this increasing danger that needs to be a conversation for all those involved in an organisation, from those at the very top to each and every individual employee throughout. Cybersecurity must be instilled as a priority, and organisations must invest in digital infrastructure to make sure data is protected as much as possible. Human error is often a cause of data breaches, so it is vital that employees know their role in making sure that their activities do not cause holes in defences.
If you have been affected by an incident that has arisen from these increasing dangers of ransomware attacks, and your personal data has been misused or exposed, you could be eligible to claim GDPR compensation now.
If there was more that an organisation storing and processing information could have done to have prevented your information from being exposed, they could be in breach of the GDPR. A breach of the GDPR could allow a victim to claim compensation for the distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. Losses and expenses can also be considered if applicable, but most people claim distress alone, which can be substantial when criminals have access to our personal and sensitive information.
If we believe that the claim has prospects to succeed, we could represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis. This way of working means that we can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed.
