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.
