Data Privacy Day 2022 – a reminder of your legal rights

Today, 28th January 2022, marks Data Privacy Day 2022. This international day of awareness is about promoting the ideas of best practice and safety for the data protection laws we have in place to be effective.

Now, as expert data privacy compensation lawyers, we can only do so much when it comes to helping with advice about preventing an incident. Our specialism really lies in what people can do after their personal information has been misused or exposed, and there is plenty that we can do for you.

It is important for the team here at Your Lawyers, as a leading firm of privacy compensation solicitors, to discuss people’s legal rights on this Data Privacy Day 2022. There is much that we can do to help people now.

Data Privacy Day 2022

Also known as Data Protection Day, Data Privacy Day 2022 is a product that reflects how our society is much more digitised these days. Even before the coronavirus pandemic, the rate at which technology has excelled has been rapid. We can do so much more with the time that we have now, and a lot of it comes down to how we make use of information that is stored digitally – on servers, on computers and in the cloud.

With the greater reliance on technology like this comes the greater risks that it can be misused and abused. Hackers and cybercriminals are constantly looking for ways in which they can break into systems so they can steal information, and they may only need to break down one door to gain access to the personal details for thousands or even millions of people. Vital data protection laws are in place to protect us all, and it is essential that organisations do all they can to protect the information that is in their charge.

Data Privacy Day 2022 is about acknowledging the importance of this, and we must all make sure that we do as much as we can to stop the hackers from misusing private and personal information.

Legal rights for justice

One thing people may not be too aware of is what avenues for justice are in place for people to use if their right to privacy has been breached. The GDPR allows us to have control over our personal information, but this control could be lost through a breach, leak, or a hack. The control taken away from us could have arisen from someone else’s fault, and where it has, victims of a data breach could be entitled to seek justice.

The GDPR can entitle victims of a data breach to pursue a claim a claim for compensation. You do not have to have lost money to be able to claim, although you can recover amounts for losses and expenses if this applies. In fact, most people claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information, and you could be entitled to receive thousands of pounds in a data breach compensation pay-out.

Having been working in this niche and complex area of law since 2014, which is a lot longer than most other firms out there, we have already recovered over £1m in data breach damages for mostly individual clients to date. We represent thousands of people just like you in singular cases and in the dozens of data breach group and multi-party actions that we are engaged in.

Our experience speaks for itself.
