Received a data breach notification? What now?

It is important to know what to do once you have received a data breach notification. You could be eligible to pursue a claim for privacy compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Firstly, whilst it is easier said than done, try not to panic. Read and understand the information that you have been provided with and make sure to follow any advice in respect of limiting any risks that you may now face. Common ways in which to reduce the risks can include things such as changing login credentials, updating passwords or even notifying your bank if a credit or debit card has been exposed in a breach.

You may be offered compensation although this is unlikely, as most organisations will not offer a settlement right away. However, if you are, you should always seek independent legal advice as soon as possible to understand your rights and understand what you could be entitled to claim. It is common for organisations to try to settle claims for low amounts, and even some inexperienced law firms out there can be guilty of this. Know your rights and speak to the experts.

Not all data breaches require reporting to regulators, nor do they require people to be notified about what has happened. If the breach is minor and no personal information is affected or exposed, you may never know that your personal data has, or could have, been affected by a breach. However, if there is any kinds of risk to you, the offending organisation should notify you about a data breach as soon as possible.
