We focus on the latest news surrounding data breaches, leaks and hacks plus daily internet security articles.
An Equifax data breach settlement has been reached in the US that will see up to $425m available for those affected by the cyberattack that was identified in 2017.
The settlement has taken place in the US which means that it is a separate matter to the legal action being taken in the UK, but this development is positive news in respect of the wider fight for justice. At the time of the posting of this article, you may still have time to join the group action case for compensation as long as you speak to the team as a matter of urgency.
We can represent victims of cloud technology data breaches, with eligible clients being able to benefit from our No Win, No Fee legal representation.
As the world continues to become more and more digitalised and cloud-based, we expect more breaches of this nature to happen. One small security flaw could do substantial damage and lead to the information for thousands or millions being compromised, which is why this is an important matter to address.
As a leading firm of data breach compensation experts, our job is to make sure that the victims of data breaches have a voice for justice, and that organisations are held to account.
You may have seen advertisements on how to claim Equifax compensation for the recent settlement in the U.S., but what about claims for the victims affected here in the UK?
We have a different jurisdiction here and it’s a different way that we’re pursuing compensation for UK victims. We’ve been acting for a number of people affected by the breach in England and Wales since news of the incident hit the headlines in 2017. Although we’re over two years on from the discovery of the breach, you still have time to join the action for compensation.
This is one of the dozens of different data breach group and multi-party actions we’re fighting for justice in. Make sure you start your claim as soon as you can, and here’s a little more information about what’s going on.
If you’ve yet to start your Equifax cyber attack compensation claim, the first thing you need to know is that the clock is ticking!
We’re almost two years on from the discovery of the data breach, and you only have a limited amount of time to start a legal case. We’re already representing a large group of victims who are claiming with us on a No Win, No Fee basis, but it’s not too late to start a case if you haven’t done so already.
The Data Leak Lawyers are pioneers when it comes to data breach compensation for group actions and multi-party litigation. We’re fighting for justice in over 25 different class cases, as well as countless individual claims as well. For some key information about the Equifax action, read on.
You may be eligible to claim Equifax data breach compensation in the UK if you were affected by the massive 2017 cyber incident.
We’re acting for a large group of victims who have joined the Equifax compensation action we launched shortly after news of the incident hit the media. We’re fast approaching the two-year anniversary of the incident, so our legal cases are well underway. There’s still time to join the action if you’ve yet to do so already, but we recommend that you contact us as soon as you can. You don’t want to miss out on any deadlines that may occur in the case.
You also don’t want to miss out when we hit the negotiations stage either.
We’re coming up to the two-year anniversary of what was one of the world’s biggest breaches, so we’re making sure to remind you not to miss the boat in the Equifax class action.
We launched legal action in the UK soon after news of the massive Equifax data breach hit the headlines. We’re now acting for a large group of people affected in the UK, as one of the over 20 different data breach group actions / multi party actions our lawyers are working on.
Unlike what some firms may do when they’re not experienced in the kinds of areas like we are, we’re activity taking cases forward on a No Win, No Fee basis. We’re not just registering information with a view to trying to taking further action later.
If you’ve yet to join the Equifax lawsuit in the UK that we’re pursuing on behalf of a number of victims, there’s still time to claim.
We started our action for justice against Equifax back in 2017 when news of the massive breach hit the headlines. Since then, we’ve been taking cases forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We’re keeping our clients duly updated. Although we can’t go into too much detail about where we’re at with the action for non-clients, we can tell you about a few developments in the fight for justice here and across the world.
The No Win, No Fee Equifax data breach compensation action we launched in 2017 is still going strong, and we’re still accepting new cases.
If you’ve yet to sign-up for an Equifax data breach claim, have a read of our advice and get the case started as soon as you can.
In terms of where we are with the cases, we’re continuing to act for a large group of victims claiming for data breach compensation. The legal action is still ongoing, but with the action now being live since 2017, we’re urging anyone who has yet to join to do so ASAP.
We’ve been stating that the Equifax cyber breach was entirely preventable since we launched our legal action for compensation last year.
Equifax failed to patch a known security vulnerability. On top of that, their staff failed to identify the ongoing vulnerability. To make things worse, they didn’t even spot the data being lifted for months and months.
Although we’ve known this for a while, it’s good to see the same statements from external reports. Unsurprisingly, another report has highlighted this important fact. It’s a fact that means we’re confident in securing compensation in the legal action we’ve launched.
The Forest of Dean Council selling data to Equifax means that residents of the area may be affected by the Equifax data breach scandal.
We’re already acting for a large number of victims of the Equifax data breach since we launched our legal action last year. Although Equifax has been fined the maximum allowed under the old rules by the ICO, our legal action is for compensation for victims. This is separate to the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) penalty for breaching the law.
We, of course, cannot go into detail about who we’re acting for with our legal action. What we can say though is that, based on recent news from Gloucestershire Live, a large number of Forest of Dean residents may be affected by the Equifax data breach.
