Your data is a valuable commodity, but many organisations are not protecting this as well as they should. All kinds of personal data is protected under UK GDPR. And where this information is breached, it is vital that victims can claim compensation and justice for any losses or harm experienced.
We all trust organisations with our personal data in return for products and services. But we expect these organisations to have the knowledge and ability to handle our information securely.
Unfortunately, while organisations are embracing technology to boost profits and make efficiencies, data protection isn’t being treated as a priority. As a result, our data privacy is being violated.
Most breaches are preventable, but many organisations just do not like investing in cybersecurity, updating their systems, or training their staff. Until this changes, data breaches will continue to rise, and people will be forced to make compensation claims to recoup their losses and uphold their data privacy rights.
At Keller Postman UK, we help people make compensation claims when an organisation has not looked after their personal information as well as it should have. We do this where multiple people have been affected by the same breach by running a group action.
Keller Postman UK is a group action law firm. With a group action claim, you and the other victims join together and fight to get compensation. Group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.
If you are a victim of a data protection failure involving your personal data, check out our current group actions to see if we are running a claim related to that specific breach.
If you are involved in a potential group action not listed below, please contact us and tell us about it! Where enough people come forward, we may launch a new claim.
We do not take on individual cases.
Don’t let the fear of costs stop you getting the justice you deserve. Contact us today and let us fight for you.
While each case is judged on its own merits, there are some things we would typically look for when it comes to when claiming compensation following a data breach, cybercrime or other GDPR violation:
With stolen data, cybercriminals can make purchases using your bank and credit cards, apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing online accounts.
GDPR failures, cybercrime and data breaches can have a significant impact on you, both mentally and physically. They can cause or exacerbate anxiety, stress and other psychological conditions.
On 10 October 2023, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) issued a reprimand for Optionis Group Limited for a withdrawal of personal data after a cyber-attack.
Earlier this year, Cambian Group experienced a data breach. Almost a year on, here’s what we know about the Cambian data breach.
In its latest draft guidance, the ICO has outlined its process for determining whether to issue data protection fines for data breaches.
