Claim compensation for housing association data breaches

You could be eligible to claim compensation if you have been the victim of any form of housing association data breaches where your information has been misused and/or exposed. The GDPR is the important piece of legislation that we use in this country to govern information policy and security. It is also used for victims to seek some form of redress if information has been subject to a breach.

Many people do not know this, but the GDPR can actually entitle you to claim compensation for any distress that you suffered that is caused by the loss of control of your personal information. You do not have to have lost any money or paid out any expenses to claim, although these can be considered if they are applicable. In most cases, you will claim for the distress that has been caused to you because the law can entitle you to have control over your information and it can be distressing when this is lost.

Data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs in housing association data breaches can be considerable given the nature of the information they store and process. Generally speaking, the more information that is affected, and the more sensitive it is, the more a legal case could be valued at.

You could be eligible to claim data breach compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis now. Find out if you are eligible to start a case with us by speaking to our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.

Watford Community Housing data breach legal action

One of the most infamous housing association data breaches that we represent people for is that of the Watford Community Housing data leak that occurred in early 2020. At a time when much of the world was grinding to a halt as result of the coronavirus pandemic, the thousands of individuals affected by this incident had to endure further stress at their information being exposed.

We represent a large number of people who are claiming data breach compensation as victims of this incident. Personal and sensitive information was leaked by way of a spreadsheet that was attached to a circular email, and some of the information contained on the document was incredibly personal and sensitive.

You may still be in time to join our Watford Community Housing compensation group action – make sure to contact us as soon as you can to find it if you are eligible to claim on a No Win, No Fee basis now.

Recent cyberattack: Bromford Group defend attack

In terms of recent housing association data breaches and cyberattacks, there was reportedly a recent incident involving the Bromford Group where they had to shut down systems after they were targeted by criminals. As result of the downtime, there were delays in some of the services they usually provide and they spent several days working with partners to try to resolve the issue.

As Data Leak Lawyers, we often talk about incidents where people have been affected by data breaches. So, it was pleasing to see that in this incident it appears that no information has actually been misused or exposed, and it looks like the cyberattack was not successful. Although shutting down systems and services in response to a cyberattack is the right thing to do, and this will always cause issues and downtime, it looks as though the Group has confirmed that there is no evidence that information has been breached. This is pleasing to note.
