You could be entitled to pursue damages in a workplace cyberattack compensation case where your personal information has been misused or exposed as a result of this kind of event. As with any organisation, your employer has an important duty to protect the personal information they store and process. When this comes to information about employees, that can be particularly personal and sensitive data, including contact information, banking information for salaries, and sensitive medical and domestic data for workplace support.
There can also be sensitive documents such as passports and driving licence images for identification, as well as official HMRC documents for tax purposes.
Cybercriminals do target the human resource information for companies to steal personal and sensitive information that they can then use to commit fraud and theft with. It is important that any organisation deploys robust cybersecurity measures to prevent this kind of thing from happening. Any poor approach that leads to a breach of the GDPR could lead to a workplace cyberattack compensation case being successful.
When it comes to a data protection breach at work in the UK, you could be eligible to pursue damages, and we may be able to represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis. We will normally assess workplace cyberattack compensation claims by answering one key question: was there more that could – and should – have been done to have prevented the incident? If the answer to this question is “yes” then we can argue that your employer has been negligent in the duty of the care they have for your personal information. Such negligence can amount to a breach of the GDPR and can entitle you to recover damages.
Typically, most people will recover compensation for any distress that has been suffered due to the loss of control of personal information. You do not have to have suffered any actual financial losses or incurred any expenses to pursue a case, but these can be considered if they are applicable. In most cases, you are claiming for the distress alone and, generally speaking, the more you suffer, the more the claim could be worth. The significance of distress can also be linked to factors such as the nature of the information involved and how badly you have been affected.
