It can be quite a worrying time after a data breach and it is important that you take certain steps to protect yourself, and that you know what to do to make sure that you are as secure as you possibly can be.
Firstly, if you know that any of your information has been misused and/or exposed, or is in the hands of people that could cause damage to you (such as fraudsters or criminals) then you may need to change access credentials. You may also need to contact your bank or any kind of organisations for accounts that are associated with any kind of company or organisation that is involved in the breach, or may be affected by the breach. You should be vigilant and watch out for any strange transactions on your online accounts, and you should also keep an eye out for any contact by phone or email, which could be from people trying to commit fraud against you.
It can be quite standard for organisations to offer certain protections such as fraud alerts and professional accounts with credit services after a breach which can also assist.
Legal advice after a data breach is incredibly important. The GDPR can entitle you to claim compensation for any distress that you have suffered from that is caused by the loss of control of your personal information. You may also be eligible to recover losses and expenses if these are applicable, but you do not need to have these involved to be able to claim.
