Cheshire West and Chester Council data leak

Media reports have confirmed that there has been a Cheshire West and Chester Council data leak, and it appears to be yet another in a long line of email breaches of its kind.

At Your Lawyers, as The Data Leak Lawyers, we are used to helping people claim compensation for incidents like this as leading privacy claims experts. It does not come as a surprise to us when we see a repeat of a style of incident, despite the fact that data laws are more stringent these days, and organisations should learn from the errors of others. Despite this, in our experience, these same kinds of breaches just keep on happening time and time again.

This may be part of the reason as to why we represent thousands of people for claims, and have already recovered over £1m in damages for mostly individual clients to date.

May 25, 2022

Claim compensation for employee data breaches

You could be eligible to claim compensation for employee data breaches, whether you are the victim as an employee, or where an employee has caused a breach on behalf of a company that has affected you.

Workplace data breach compensation claims can be some of the most severe that we help people with. Equally, with so much information now being stored and processed by organisations, any privacy breach could lead to personal and sensitive information being misused or exposed.

The law can entitle victims of a data breach to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. Your Lawyers, as Leading Data Lawyers, are here to help you now.
