Airline cyberattacks and data breach claims

Previous data found that cyberattacks on the aviation industry had increased significantly in recent years, with commercial airlines reportedly suffering the heaviest blows. Unfortunately, such rises come as little surprise to us, and will likely not shock many others. Numerous airline cyberattacks in recent years have caused us to become accustomed to this sort of problem.

From British Airways to Air India, we have seen a number of high-profile cyber incidents involving airlines over the past few years, some of which have subsequently resulted in major data breach group actions. Given that aviation companies hold huge quantities of often highly sensitive personal information, it is natural that they are prime targets for hackers seeking to steal information. What can be harder to accept is that airlines keep failing to defend themselves against such attacks.

If you have had your personal data exposed as a result of an airline cyberattack, you may be able to recover compensation for the harm you have been caused.  Our involvement in the group legal actions against both British Airways and easyJet means that we are an expert firm to come to for your data breach claim.

It is not uncommon for people who have been affected by data breaches to receive increased incidents of scam and spam emails. Some of these emails can be attributed to hackers behind cyberattacks, or criminals who have accessed exposed information that could be for sale online.

Data breach victims receiving threats from hackers

In some cases, cybercriminals can steal from you directly, using stolen bank details or by hacking your online accounts to make unauthorised payments or transfers. However, there are other cases in which criminals can manipulate their victims by using misleading and fraudulent communication to trick people into handing over private information, or overtly blackmailing them into doing so. When victims receive threats from hackers, they can feel incredibly vulnerable, and it may feel difficult to know what to do.

The current state of cybercrime is such that there are very few of us who will have never been targeted with fraudulent messages or calls. Data breach victims can become even more vulnerable to such communication, some of which can be incredibly threatening in nature. As details exposed in data breaches can fall into the hands of criminals, data controllers can be held responsible for any harm caused to victims.

The link between data breaches and cybercrime is clear, which is why companies in possession of personal information must do their utmost to protect it. Where they fail to do so, they can be held liable through data breach compensation claims made by the victims.

Your legal rights following a data breach

In the wake of a data breach, it can be difficult to know what to do to protect yourself and take action in light of the harm you may have been caused. As leading specialists in data breach claims, Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – can advise you of your legal rights in the event that your data is compromised or exposed.

A breach of data protection law can be any incident in which a third-party data controller fails to protect private information in a way that breaches their legal obligations. In accordance with the GDPR, all businesses and organisations are required to use appropriate organisational and technical measures to keep personal information secure, and failing to do so can leave a third party liable for any harm caused to their data subjects.

Data breach claims still represent a developing area of compensation law, but Your Lawyers has been representing clients for data privacy matters since 2014. Some firms have only just begun branching out into data breach claims, but we have developed the expertise to bring our claimants the compensation they deserve.
