Am I affected by the Virgin Media data breach? With the information for a monumental 900,000 customers exposed, this is a popular question right now.

Any data breach can be daunting, but when news of a new leak or hack hits the headlines and it’s a company you do business with, it’s worrying. Key data protection legislation puts an important duty on organisations to inform victims of a breach, and victims should be informed as soon as possible, and within the legal time frame for doing so.

For those who are affected by this cybersecurity incident, we’ve launched a compensation action for victims. If you’re affected, we can help you.

Am I affected by the Virgin Media data breach?

The big question right now: the Virgin Media data breach has happened, but am I affected?

To know if you’re affected or not, Virgin Media should contact you to let you know. We know that they sent out breach notification emails earlier this month, and some have been issued with notifications by text as well. The GDPR means that they have an important duty to make sure they tell all the customers affected, so you should be notified. The notification should be received within 72 hours of an organization becoming aware of the breach, where feasible.

If you have received notification that you are affected, what happens next and how can we help you?
