Targeted cyberattack incidents are matters in which criminals will specifically try to hit a specific company or organisation in order to break into their systems and servers. This is as opposed to a more generic cyberattack that could affect many companies where criminals may be looking for broad weaknesses.
Targeted cyberattack incidents can, in some cases, be more successful because the criminals may have worked out a specific way in which they can break into the systems they are trying to access. If there are specific flaws that they can exploit, the organisation in question may be negligent in the duty of care that they have to protect against successful attacks. If they are negligent in that duty of care, they could be in breach of the GDPR which could allow a victim of a data breach to claim privacy compensation.
If you have been the victim involved in any targeted cyberattack incidents or even general ones that have affected an organisation that stores and processes your information, you could be eligible to pursue compensation.
The GDPR puts an important duty on all organisations to protect the information in their charge. Should they fail to do this, they could be in breach of the GDPR, and any negligence in that respect could allow a victim to claim damages.
In the case of a cyberattack incident, it is generally about identifying whether more could have been done by the organisation hit by the incident to prevent data exposure. An easy and simple example could be that, if the cybersecurity defences in place were inadequate, and that allowed hackers to gain access to information, the organisation could be in breach of the GDPR. To give you a real-world example, the Equifax cyberattack in 2017 stemmed from a known security flaw not being patched by the company, which resulted in hackers gaining access to swathes of personal and sensitive information.
