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 In 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack specifically targeted older and more outdated systems that may not be up to date, and the NHS was hit hard.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.
