There is absolutely no excuse at all for organisations being unprepared for phishing attacks given that they are one of the most common forms of hacks that are taking place nowadays. It is vital that all employees in organisations are carefully trained and receive information and advice so they understand how to spot such dangers and avoid them. It is also important that organisations deploy systems to prevent such attacks from taking place as much as possible.
The GDPR is clear in respect of making sure that organisations protect the information in their charge. Any failure to do so can constitute a breach of the GDPR which can then leave an organisation responsible for compensating victims for any information misuse or exposure. We will go into more in detail about that below.
Despite the clarity of the legislation in place, and the availability of systems and services and training material, it can still be quite common for such attacks to take place and succeed. This is, perhaps, indicative of widespread issues in respect of organisations being unprepared for phishing attacks which is something that needs to change as soon as possible.
If your information has been misused or exposed as a result of an organisation being unprepared for phishing attacks, or as a result of any other kind of data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation. The GDPR can allow you to recover damages for any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, and you could be owed thousands of pounds in damages for that distress.
If we believe your case is one that can succeed, we can represent you for a legal claim on a No Win, No Fee basis. We work this way as part of our commitment to access to justice and it means that you can be assured in knowing that you will not have to pay hefty legal fees if the case does not win, as long as you comply with the terms and conditions in place.
All you need to do to find out if we are able to help you pursue a compensation claim for a data breach is to contact us for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.
The NHS was hacked in 2017 as part of the infamous wider WannaCry matter and it really highlighted the potential risks and vulnerabilities in respect of healthcare data breaches. The matter directly affected patient services and caused significant amounts of problems for many NHS Trusts across the country, so it is vital that a repeat of such an incident never takes place.
We know that much has been done in the wake of that particular attack to prevent future ones from taking place, but with medical data breach compensation claims still being common ones we take forward, it is clear that more needs to be learned, perhaps.
