Research conducted by ResearchBods found that consumers put the responsibility for data leaks, breaches, and hacks firmly on the shoulders of the organisations.
The study results showed that people blame the organisations far more than the hackers, and in terms of how the law actually works, it’s fair to say that the legal responsibility does weigh heavily on organisation (as Data Controllers) anyway.
The excuse “oh, but we were hacked!” is not one that will save an organisation from criminal or civil prosecution!
The Data Protection Act exists to ensure that organisations in control of data actively protect data and ensure that data cannot fall in to the wrong hands. Security and training is how you do it, but hackers still find ways of breaching security systems, and the blame is on the organisations – both in terms of the law, and how we see it as individuals!
Over the last few years some really big names have been at the wrong end of data leaks and hacks, and we’re representing large numbers of individuals in multiple actions, as well as for individual actions too. Right now we are acting for groups who have had their private medical data leaked; consumers who have had their account information hacked; and individuals pursuing personal claims worth millions of pounds for extremely serious data protection breaches, to name a few.
We can do this, as expert Data Leak lawyers, because the law is there to protect you; so if your data has been leaked, hacked, or your rights to privacy have been breached, you may rightfully hold the organisation responsible, both in your view, and in law.
