Data Breach Group Action Claims
When new data protection legislation, GDPR, came into force in 2018, it increased the rights that individuals, or ‘data subjects’ had over their personal data. As well as this, it introduced much tighter restrictions about what companies, or ‘data controllers’, could do with it.
A data breach is when personal data is lost, destroyed, accessed or disclosed in an unauthorised way whether that’s by accident or deliberately by someone inside or outside the organisation.
Breaches can happen as a result of inadequate business practice, human error or cybercrime. All of which means that our personal and sensitive date is not as safe as it should be. Legislation states that victims of data breaches are entitled to monetary compensation, where a company, or ‘data controller’ is at fault.
If you are one of many people whose data has been breached, you have the choice to join with the other people to take legal action together. This collective legal action is called Group Action Claims.
