Claiming compensation for recruitment data breaches

Victims of recruitment data breaches could be entitled to claim compensation for the loss of control of any personal information that is consequently misused or exposed. A privacy case can allow for damages to be claimed for any distress that is caused by the loss of control, which can be substantial in this kind of claim.

Recruiters will often need a great deal of very personal and sensitive information as part of the process of helping people obtain employment. This includes personal details, job histories, identification documents, and even financial data. In the wrong hands, this could cause serious harm to anyone whose information has been misused or exposed.

As we often say, context can also be important. Recruitment for certain jobs and in certain career sectors may need to be more confidential, so breaches in this kind of setting can be worse. Generally speaking, the more a person suffers, the more a privacy compensation claim can be valued, and these are factors that we will always look to take into account.

If we believe that there is a case to answer, we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation for eligible clients.

A recent example: UK army recruitment system

Earlier this year, the UK’s army recruitment systems were taken offline after candidate information was reportedly exposed in what was assumed to have been a cyberattack.

In the midst of the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, in mid-March, the platform was shut down as a precaution after the data for an estimated 120 candidates was apparently found for sale on the dark web. At the time of the incident, there was no formal identification in respect of who was behind the attack, but the event is worrying. This is an example of context when it comes to how significant a data breach can be, as even a few personal details exposed when it comes to army recruitment can be serious. When it comes to recruitment data breaches, a cyberattack that affects the armed forces can never be played down.
