Data breach victims receiving threats from hackers

In some cases, cybercriminals can steal from you directly, using stolen bank details or by hacking your online accounts to make unauthorised payments or transfers. However, there are other cases in which criminals can manipulate their victims by using misleading and fraudulent communication to trick people into handing over private information, or overtly blackmailing them into doing so. When victims receive threats from hackers, they can feel incredibly vulnerable, and it may feel difficult to know what to do.

The current state of cybercrime is such that there are very few of us who will have never been targeted with fraudulent messages or calls. Data breach victims can become even more vulnerable to such communication, some of which can be incredibly threatening in nature. As details exposed in data breaches can fall into the hands of criminals, data controllers can be held responsible for any harm caused to victims.

The link between data breaches and cybercrime is clear, which is why companies in possession of personal information must do their utmost to protect it. Where they fail to do so, they can be held liable through data breach compensation claims made by the victims.
