You could be entitled to claim compensation when an organisation failed to protect personal data that belongs to you. The GDPR puts an important duty on organisations to process information fairly and to protect the data that they store and process. In a situation where they have failed to protect personal data from a breach, leak or a hack, those whose information has then been misused or exposed could be entitled to pursue GDPR privacy compensation.
To win a claim, you normally need to prove that you have been the victim of some form of negligence, so we will need to investigate what has happened to determine this. Ultimately, if an organisation that failed to protect personal data that involves you stems from some kind of error or avoidable situation, that is when we may be able to prove negligence. It could be that they have accidentally disclosed information to the wrong person, or inadvertently allowed access to your data when you did not consent for such access to occur. It could be that information has been viewed or shared by an employee when they had no authority or right to do so, and it is worth remembering that any mistakes of an employee can fall onto the shoulders of the employer in terms of responsibility. This is known as vicarious liability, meaning that you can pursue the company when the negligence arises from an employee.
The issue of claiming for cyberattacks can be common when it comes to the question of negligence. Ultimately, if more could – and should – have been done to have prevented the hack from being successful, that is when we may be able to prove negligence and pursue a successful case for you. An easy example could be that of the Equifax hack from 2017 which was successful because the company failed to patch a known security vulnerability that was then exploited.
