NHS ransomware attacks: rights for victims

NHS ransomware attacks

Victims of NHS ransomware attacks can be entitled to claim data breach compensation with our expert team on a No Win, No Fee basis today.

Attacks against public sectors can be common because cybercriminals do target what they deem to be weaker systems, and this includes the NHS. In 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack specifically targeted older and more outdated systems that may not be up to date, and the NHS was hit hard. There’s a trove of incredibly personal and sensitive data that the NHS is responsible for, which is another reason as to why it’s a target.

It’s the government’s responsibility to ensure that the NHS is fully protected against cyberattacks by properly funding our national healthcare service. For victims of a successful cyberattack, their rights are enshrined in law, and it’s important that we address this.

Mental health apps and concerns over data breaches

mental health apps

Some statistics have put the number of downloads for mental health apps at one million since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and these apps have been around for quite some time.

The additional strain that the pandemic is causing on our mental wellbeing is widely recognised, and the increased usage of such apps doesn’t come as a surprise. But people do need to be careful, and some apps will be more secure than others. It’s a perfect opportunity for scammers to try to muscle their way in to get hold of sensitive information too.

So, should we be concerned, what may happen if an app is breached, and what can we do to help people?

data breach deleting information

Although we’d like to think that this kind of thing wouldn’t happen, it does. Sometimes, organisations or the people working for them may opt to try and avoid the fallout of a problem by erasing information; i.e. ‘getting rid of the evidence’. This is wrong, and victims should know their rights when something like this happens.

As a leading firm of consumer action and data breach compensation lawyers, we represent victims for this kind of case. Here’s how we may be able to help you.
