NHS cybersecurity claims

We can represent victims for NHS cybersecurity claims. We can offer No Win, No Fee representation, which is important in today’s increasingly digitalised age.

The NHS is a huge target for hackers given that they do not always have the resources in place to be able to fend off attacks. As we saw with the 2017 WannaCry incident where malware specifically targeted older and more outdated systems, the NHS was hit hard.

Victims should never suffer in silence. We fight for the rights of victims for NHS data breach compensation claims that arise from cybersecurity problems.

court deadline judge

We’re now just 12 months away from the official BA cyber-attack compensation deadline for the formal Group Litigation Order that has been established.

By order of the High Court of Justice, in October 2018, a formal GLO was put into place. This means that all cases that form as part of this action will be managed as part of the joint proceedings. Our firm has been appointed to the Steering Committee that’s responsible for the overall conduct of the litigation, and the deadline to join was set for 17th January 2021.

You may not be worried about the deadline given how far away it is. You should take heed of it, and there’s really no reason as to why you should delay starting your case.

Dixons Carphone data breach fine issued

Hacked Cybersecurity

The ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) has issued a maximum Dixons Carphone data breach fine in the sum of £500,000.00.

As the breach period was prior to the introduction of the GDPR, they have escaped fines that could have hit hundreds of millions of pounds under the new rules. But the level of the fine that has been issued reflects the severity of this breach that resulted in the personal information for some 14 million people being compromised. It also led to the details for 5.6 million payment cards being exposed as well.

We’re representing victims for this breach and have been doing for a number of years since news of it broke a couple of years ago.
