We’re pleased to be able to offer No Win, No Fee arrangements for this action, which could be set to be the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) action so far. BA are already facing a record fine from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) which shows how seriously they’re taking the attacks. It also means that the case against BA in terms of liability is strong in our view, which is why we can offer the No Win, No Fee assistance.
But make sure you sign-up for a claim as soon as you can to take advantage of our offer before time runs out.
You can instruct us to represent you for your British Airways compensation claim by completing the quick and simple forms on the BA Group Action website.

The university recently announced that sophisticated and malicious cyber attacks had taken place, and that student and applicant data may have been exposed. We’re therefore prepared to take cases forward for victims of the incidents, and with our lawyers already fighting for justice in a number of group and multi-party actions already, you can be assured that your case is in safe hands with us.
This isn’t the first time we have represented university students for a data breach incident. If you need legal advice about your options, we’re here for you.
The provisional Marriott data breach fine is to be reportedly set at £99m, with news of this fine coming just days after the record-setting BA data breach fine.
This is another significant financial punishment issued by the UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office. Marriott is understood to have expressed that they’re “disappointed” with the fine, despite the severity of this breach the fact that information had been exposed for such a long period of time.
These first major GDPR fines show one thing: that the ICO mean business when it comes to using the new legislation that came into force in May 2018.
It’s important to understand that the £183m British Airways data breach fine and the action for compensation for victims are two different things.
The £183m fine that’s provisionally been issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is designed to be a punishment and a deterrent. Money from the fine will normally go to the treasury and is not for the victims of the breach, and that’s why we have our separate action for justice.
For the victims to be able to claim compensation, you’ll need to be a part of the pending group action that will likely be pursued in the courts. You can sign-up to join our claimant group here.
The BA data breach fine that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is set to issue will be a record high of £183m.
The level of the fines reflects the severity of this breach that resulted in hundreds of thousands of people’s information being compromised. It will be the biggest financial penalty that the ICO has ever issue as part of the new GDPR rules that came into force last year.
We’ve been representing a number of people who are claiming for data breach compensation as victims of the incidents. If you’ve yet to start your No Win, No Fee legal case, you can sign-up here.
If you’ve fallen victim to so-called TalkTalk fraudsters as a result of your information being exposed in the 2015 data breach, we can help you.
Some of the people who have asked us for help who were affected by the TalkTalk data breach have been targeted by fraudsters. Criminals have contacted people posing as TalkTalk, and they’ve been able to convince some people that they’re the real deal. They’ve achieved this because they’ve been able to provide personal data for the victims, including TalkTalk account information, and even details about legitimate complaints that have been made.
We can only assume that the criminals have got hold of this information because of the 2015 breach. That’s why anyone who has been targeted by fraudsters may be able to join the compensation action we’ve been running for the last few years.
There has been a key update in the TalkTalk data breach scandal from 2015, as the information for thousands more victims affected in the scandal has been found online.
An additional 4,545 customers are understood to have been affected after their information was discovered online. This is in addition to the over 155,000 that were found to have been affected years ago.
We’re representing a group of victims who are claiming data breach compensation having been affected by the original incident. If you’ve yet to claim, or if you’re one of the thousands of additional victims who have been affected, we may be able to help you.
There’s still time to start your we-vibe data breach compensation claim and be a part of the legal action we’ve been running since news of the scandal hit the headlines.
We’re representing a large group of victims on a No Win, No Fee basis. Claims are live and being pursued in the UK, and we’re still taking cases forward now (just last week we added more Claimants to our growing list).
Although you’re still in time to join the action, we strongly recommend that you initiate your legal case as soon as you can. We’ve been fighting for justice since 2017, so we’re more than two years on from taking cases forward. Deadlines are looming, and we don’t want you to miss out on your chance to claim.
We have taken No Win, No Fee claims for compensation forward for victims of the Bounty data breach after the ICO issued a significant fine of £400,000.00.
The fine from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) was issued in accordance with the previous rules before GDPR came into force in May 2018. Victims of the incident may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation, and we have already been contacted for help.
Our lawyers are fighting for justice in dozens of different data breach actions. This is on top of the individual cases we help people with as well. If you need advice, we can help you on a free and no-obligation basis.
We’ve taken cases on with our No Win, No Fee policy for victims of the recent Police Federation of England and Wales data breach incidents.
The cyber attacks that hit the PFEW took place in March 2019; the first on 9th, and the second on the 21st. Neither were thought to have been specifically targeting PFEW and are understood to have been part of a wider malware incident.
PFEW has confirmed that they’re unable to rule out that information has been exposed. As they’re unable to rule it out, we can take claims for data breach compensation forward for anyone suffering distress as a result of the incident. There could be as many as 120,000 police employees that have been hit by the breaches.
Action has been taken in the wake of the massive Marriott cyber attack that was revealed last year, both here in the U.K. and in the U.S.
In the U.K., victims may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation if you were one of the 500 million people affected. If you’re a resident in England or Wales, we can represent you for the case. A claim is separate to any enforcement action and fines that may be issue by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office). Those fines alone could end up in the hundreds of millions.
As well as claims and fines, testimonies and apologies took place last month as well. Here’s the latest.
