University Of Greenwich Data Leak

Our Data Leak Lawyers have commenced investigations in to the serious data breach committed by The University of Greenwich which saw private information of hundreds of students posted online.

The information posted was alongside minutes from the university's Faculty Research Degrees Committee. It included personal information about students that was published online and accessible through simple Google searches. Although the information has been removed, it is feared that it may still be available.

Data Claim Experts
We have recovered over £1m for data breach victims since 2014 as leading pioneers in privacy claims law.

Details Leaked Include Names; Addresses; Dates Of Birth; Phone Numbers; And Signatures Of Students.

The data breach of personal information was serious enough. Unfortunately there was additional information for some students that included medical and mental health problems, and an example disclosed by media sources that states a student had a brother fighting in a Middle Eastern army.

Staff comments and progress information were included in the information that was published as well, and copies of private emails between students and staff were also visible.

Information Commissioners Office (ICO) Investigation

The ICO has already been contacted about the incident and it is likely that enforcement action will be taken. The ICO investigates data protection breaches on a continual basis, and they're likely to impose fines that could be in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In total, fines can be in the millions of pounds.

Our Data Leak Lawyers View

We're already involved in several group actions for data breaches of a similar nature, and we act for individuals involved in serious data breaches that have had their private and confidential information leaked or disclosed.

We are currently acting for a number of individuals who had their private medical information disclosed by way of a breach last year, and this new action we are investigating for the leak at The University of Greenwich is of a similar nature.

We are therefore accepting cases on a no win, no fee basis.

In a word from our team:

"This is unfortunately yet another serious breach of data protection and human rights laws. As lawyers already involved in ongoing and past actions, we're sadly not surprised by what has happened, and this is another example of a lack of care in terms of protecting the confidential and private information that organisations are in control of."
