Any form of Ministry of Defence data breach could have a serious impact on the victims whose personal and sensitive information could be misused or exposed.

At Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – we are leading privacy compensation claims experts with a great deal more experience than most other firms out there when it comes to these types of cases. This is because we represent thousands of people – since 2014 – for data claims, and we have launched over 50 group and multi-party data actions.

An MOD data breach is usually a serious incident. If you have suffered from the loss of control of personal information from such a breach, our team may be able to help you now.

Claiming for a Ministry of Defence data breach

If you have been the victim of a Ministry of Defence data breach, you could be entitled to claim thousands of pounds in compensation. We may be able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation.

It goes without saying that the nature of the personal information that could be involved in such a breach could be incredibly personal and sensitive. There can be security risks that are involved with an MOD data breach, so the impact for the victims can be significant.

And with more and more soldiers coming back to civilian life with understandable mental health struggles, a data breach involving their personal data could have a serious knock-on effect. This element is carefully considered in a data breach compensation claim, and we take this kind of impact seriously when it comes to ensuring that our clients receive some form of justice for what they have had to endure.

What could you claim for?

In any legal case where you are claiming for a data breach, you could be eligible to typically recover compensation for:

  • Any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information; and/or
  • Any losses or expenses incurred.

Importantly, you do not have to have actually incurred losses or expenses to claim. You could claim for just the distress alone, and compensation pay-outs for this in a Ministry of Defence data breach case can be significant. This can especially be the case when a data breach has resulted in significant distress and suffering, and where your personal safety could be at risk.

You only need to look at the recent incident where the government has been forced to apologise for a data leak involving people eligible for the Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy (Arap). Real lives could be at risk when such a breach occurs, and it is inexcusable for such an incident to have occurred so easily.
