Fraudsters accessing your computer from data breaches: a real threat

In our digital age, cybercriminals are constantly seeking new methods of stealing and misusing information, typically for their own financial gain. Your private data can be a key tool for criminals, as it can give them a direct route via which to target you. As a result, when your personal information is exposed, it can lead to fraudsters accessing your computer and your private accounts in some cases.

As cybercrime continues to grow, it is vital that third-party data controllers do all they can to protect the personal information which they store and process. From local councils to huge corporations, many kinds of organisations hold extensive personal information, and all must abide by data protection law to ensure it stays safe. Unfortunately, we still do not see satisfactory data protection across the board.

No one should have to contend with fraudsters’ deceitful tactics. If your data falls into the hands of criminals as a result of a third-party data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation. The law is there to allow you to assert your rights in such situations, and our expert team of lawyers can help you to do so.

Property management firm data breach compensation claims

Whether it’s a local agency or a nationwide chain, many property management firms may be perceived as prime targets for data hackers. Any organisation that stores extensive customer information could be seen as an opportunity for cybercriminals, so the possibility of a property management firm data breach is something all companies must aim to prevent.

Unfortunately, despite the growing awareness of data security issues in the media and among the general public, many data controllers fail to observe the data protection regulations set out in the law. Even for businesses that possess large quantities of sensitive customer information, data protection negligence can be a problem.

If you have had your data exposed by a third party due to their failure to protect it, you may be entitled to claim compensation. In accordance with the law, everyone has a right to have the personal data they disclose to third-party companies kept safe, so contact us for advice if you think you may have a claim to make.

Remote workers exposing data

Remote working has been a key security focus for some companies for a number of years, but the coronavirus pandemic has led to many more businesses adopting homeworking as a long-term practice. For some, remote working has longevity beyond social distancing restrictions. However, it can come with cybersecurity concerns, such that businesses must ensure they are effectively managing the risks of remote workers exposing data.

As well as the external cybersecurity threats to company servers, there is also a risk that undisciplined employees may make mistakes when they are no longer working in a controlled environment. Even the simplest of errors or oversights could allow sensitive information to become vulnerable.

Unfortunately, when the transition was made to remote working, some companies failed to make the cybersecurity adjustments required. Going forward, it is important that every company adapts their data protection strategies to the demands of remote working, or they may risk information exposure.
