About the Lancaster University data breach

The Lancaster University data breach incidents are said to affect a number of students and applicants in what has been described as malicious, sophisticated cyber-attacks.

There were two incidents as follows:

  • An attack that affected the data for 2019 and 2020 applicants;
  • A breach of the student records system.

We’ve put together a comprehensive advice page for you to have a look at if you were affected by the incident, and this includes information about what data may have been exposed in the attacks.

Who can claim?

If you’ve been informed that you were a victim of one or both of the Lancaster University data breach incidents, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation with us.

You don’t have to have suffered any financial loss as a result of the incidents. You can be entitled to make a claim for the distress suffered as a result of the loss of control and exposure of your personal and sensitive information.

Data breach compensation amounts are designed to reflect the extent and the severity of the understandable distress that’s caused by a breach.

Will there be a GDPR fine?

The Information Commissioner’s office (ICO) has the power to impose significant fines for breaches of GDPR. If they consider that the Lancaster University cyber attacks are severe enough to warrant a financial penalty, we could see one on the horizon.

Money from fines isn’t usually used for compensation which is why we run our separate actions for victims to get the help and justice that they deserve.
