healthcare data breach spikes
July 11, 2022

Healthcare data breach spikes in recent years

Healthcare data breach spikes in recent years have been triggered by the increasing digitisation of society, and as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately, whilst efficiency can be achieved through moving how we work and how we operate into digital infrastructure, the risks can be substantial. Any defence when it comes to information is only as good as its weakest link, and we saw cybercriminals exploiting vulnerabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic where healthcare industry staff were under substantial amounts of pressure in managing the virus.

Whilst we can see the reasoning as to how these spikes occur, the importance of data protection cannot be understated. When it comes to the impact on the victims, we are here as Specialist Data Breach Lawyers to help people.

Claim compensation for a healthcare data breach

Healthcare professionals owe several duties to their patients, one of which is ensuring that their medical information remains confidential and is only used and shared with other doctors when necessary for diagnosis and treatment purposes. This central tenet of the medical profession is something all doctors learn in their training. However, unfortunately, the integrity of our doctors is being let down all too frequently by data protection negligence across the healthcare sector. When a healthcare data breach occurs, it can put one of the central requirements of medical practice at risk.

The healthcare sector is one of the most vulnerable sectors in terms of cyberattacks, but is also one plagued by human error data breaches, in which the employees themselves are responsible for the exposure of private information. If you have felt the repercussions of a healthcare data breach, you may well know the harm that can be caused to the victims.

We have pursued many data breach compensation claims relating to the healthcare sector over the years, including group and multi-party actions such as the infamous 56 Dean Street clinic data breach. We encourage anyone affected by a breach like this to come forward for advice on their potential claim, and we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation for eligible clients.

Stor-A-File cyberattack: data dumped on the dark web

The latest developments in the recently discovered Stor-A-File cyberattack are concerning. After the company refused to pay a ransom demand issued by the hackers behind the attack, what has been described as tens of thousands of files have now reportedly been dumped on the dark web.

It is understood that Store-A-File refused to meet the demands of the ransom, which was reportedly set at £3m in Bitcoin, on the advice of authorities. Unfortunately, the hackers appear to have followed through on their threats and have now exposed information caught up in the data breach on the dark web. It could now be exploited by criminals, and victims will need to remain incredibly vigilant.

We recently reported on the Lister Fertility Clinic data breach as one of the organisations that were caught up in the Stor-A-File cyberattack. Some 1,700 patients had reportedly been corresponded with to advise of their potential involvement in the breach as a company using Stor-A-File for scanning services. It is thought that some 13 organisations may be affected in all, and these are understood to include the NHS, GP surgeries, local councils, and some private sector companies including law firms and accountants.
