Employees breaching the GDPR

When we begin a new job, we will typically receive information and training in respect of data protection and cybersecurity responsibilities, guiding us on how to act to ensure that private and personal information remains safe. All employers are obliged to educate their employees on how to comply with data protection law to avoid the possibility of employees breaching the GDPR.

However, a lacklustre or negligent approach to data protection can result in low awareness among employees, leading to data breaches. Whilst many may imagine that data breaches are often caused by computer faults or malicious cyberattacks, human error is often responsible, putting employees on the frontline of company data protection.

If a needless or even malicious employee breach compromised an individual’s information security, that person could be eligible to claim compensation for any harm caused by the breach. It is vital that data breach victims seek legal representation to fight for the justice they deserve.

What to do after a data leak

As specialists in data compensation claims and consumer actions, we often encounter people who are worried about what to do after a data leak.

It is always concerning to learn that your information has been exposed, and it can cause victims to panic and feel helpless. In this difficult situation, it is important to remember that there are actions to be taken in such situations: both to protect you from further security risks and to hold those who caused the breach accountable for their actions.

When data is leaked, there is often no telling who may have gained access to the private information, but there is always the risk that criminals may seek to misuse it for their own – usually financial – gain. The data exposure itself cannot be undone in some circumstances, but there are further precautions that can be taken in the aftermath of a leak to mitigate the risks to your data and your bank accounts.
