Serious Bristol City Council data breach

council email data leaks

A serious Bristol City Council data breach has occurred, revealing the names of hundreds of disabled children as well as the email addresses for primary care providers.

A spokesperson for Bristol City Council has said that there will be staff training and improved systems and policies put into place to prevent any similar breaches from occurring in the future. We question why such measures were not already in place, and it has been suggested that the breach was the result of employee error.

We know how scary it is to have such sensitive data breached, and we can help you make a compensation claim to get you the justice you deserve.

The seriousness of a housing customer data breach

data breach deleting information

A housing customer data breach can be extremely concerning to residents as they can easily expose highly sensitive data.

Information involved can include personal information such as names and addresses, as well as sensitive and protected information like sexual orientation, disabilities, ethnic origins, and more.

Data of this nature that is exposed can leave victims not only vulnerable to fraud, phishing scams, cold callers, and identity theft, but also to malicious attacks. This kind of information in the wrong hands could be the basis for racist or malicious incidents, so it is important that we address such risks.
