Ticketmaster data breach compensation action: two years on

Ticketmaster data breach compensation

This week marks the second anniversary of the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action that we launched when victims of the breach were notified about what had happened.

This was one of the first big breaches that took place just after the introduction of the GDPR. We knew it was just a matter of time until a data breach event like that took place, and we immediately started legal action. In fact, we launched the action by way of a formal Letter of Claim to Ticketmaster within weeks of the breach hitting the headlines in 2018.

We now act for a group of victims of the data breach who we are representing for compensation cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. If you have yet to start your case, you should do so ASAP, and we will outline what steps you need to take here.

easyJet data breach: the biggest of 2020?

Airline data breach

Last week, the easyJet data breach hit the headlines and may have become the biggest incident in 2020 so far, and it may remain as that for the rest of the year.

When you look at how this compares to other recent incidents, which we’ll outline below, it’s a staggering number. It seems likely that this will go down as one of the biggest incidents of all time to hit the UK.
