York Council data breach

mobiles and apps

The York City Council data breach revealed at the end of November appears to be another avoidable breach from a local authority.

In this incident, an IT expert inadvertently stumbled across a huge vulnerability in the York City Council’s environmental app, named One Plant York. The app, which has since been taken down, had some 6,000 users and was aimed at promoting environmental protection. Unfortunately, a vulnerability in the app’s coding led to the personal and private information of the 6,000 users being compromised.

Claim Equifax cyber attack compensation now

It’s not too late to join the claim Equifax cyber attack compensation. We started a legal action last year, but you can still start a case now.

Equifax were recently fined £500,000.00 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as a result of the cyber attack. Despite the fact that the organisation turns over billions each year, the attack took place before the GDPR came into force. This meant that the maximum fine that the ICO could issue was the one they were given.

Victims of the Equifax cyber attack can be entitled to justice by claiming for data breach compensation. The cost of the claims should be met by Equifax and should act as a greater punishment for this avoidable attack.

Equifax data breach fine hits maximum limit

data breaches

The Equifax data breach fine issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has hit the maximum limit of £500,000.00.

The 2017 Equifax data breach resulted in some 700,000 UK citizens put at risk from data exposure. In total, around 15 million records were actually compromised.

This was a major breach for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was preventable; taking place because an employee failed to patch a known security vulnerably. Secondly, because the damage could have been lessened had Equifax have had proper systems in place to spot such a breach. Thirdly, because of who Equifax are. This is a company who is a credit-reference agency. The fact that a data breach has happened to them is incredibly worrying.
