Watford Community Housing data leak

email address breaches can you claim for compensation

Over a year has passed since the Watford Community Housing data leak, in which an erroneous email caused thousands of tenants’ personal information to be exposed. Data security was not the only thing to be compromised, with some victims feeling their personal safety was also at risk.

As specialists in data breach claims, we have often witnessed poor awareness of the severity of breaches such as the Watford Community Housing leak, and our work is important to make sure that victims receive some form of justice for what has happened.

We want to reassure victims that we know how distressing these incidents can be, and to remind them that they still have a chance to make a compensation claim. In fact, you could be entitled to make a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis, so make sure to seek our advice today for more information if you have yet to join the compensation action.

Passwords found on the dark web

Blackbaud data breach ransomware

As a tool for accessing online accounts, passwords can often be a key target for cybercriminals. As such, when a data breach or cyberattack occurs, passwords can be among the most valuable information for the hackers to get hold of in the incident. In the aftermath of incidents like these, passwords found on the dark web can be a sign of the scale of the data theft, and the security threat to the affected victims.

Security researchers are often searching the dark web for indications of consumer data theft, and there have been a number of alarming news stories in recent years detailing how much personal information may be circulating on the dark web. The sharing, sale and purchasing of data is a highly worrying prospect, particularly for those who know that their information has been exposed.

When a third-party company fails to protect your personal data, this can make it vulnerable to misuse by cybercriminals. Nobody should be put in these dangerous situations, which is why data breach victims can be entitled to claim compensation for the harm caused on a No Win, No Fee basis with us.
