Virgin Media Group Action launched for data breach victims

Virgin Media data breach claim

The Virgin Media Group Action has been launched for victims of the 2020 data breach, and the telecommunications giant now has weeks to respond or face court action.

In the event that they do not respond and agree to resolve cases amicably by way of an agreed resolution, an application for a Group Litigation Order (GLO) is set to be issued. This will usually lead to claimants’ cases being brought together under one set of efficient proceedings. Crucially, it will usually also lead to a final deadline for people to join the case as well.

Now that the Virgin Media Group Action has been launched, victims of the data breach are urgent to sign-up and start their case as soon as possible.
