Malicious cyberattacks are events in which criminals and hackers may seek to break into systems and servers to steal information or expose data for nefarious purposes. You could almost count most forms of hacks as malicious cyberattacks, but sometimes they are “white hat hacks” where security researchers identify weaknesses. In other cases, organisations may be offering “bug bounties” for “white hat hacks” for hackers to try to break into systems for a reward. In these cases, it is normally about improving information security as opposed to criminals seeking to gain by stealing data.
In today’s digitised age, it is massively important for organisations to deploy expert cybersecurity systems and hire employees to prevent the information in their charge from being exposed. There is so much accessibility online nowadays, which is why there are organised criminal gangs who are constantly on the look out to try to find ways to steal valuable information. Ultimately, data has value, and it could be used to try to commit fraud and theft directly against victims. It could also be used to hold organisations to ransom with the threat of releasing sensitive personal information.
Anyone who has fallen victim to malicious cyberattacks could be eligible to claim compensation against the organisation that was responsible for protecting the data in the first place. Whilst the criminals may be responsible for the actual exposure of any information, organisations have a duty in accordance with the GDPR to do all they can to protect the information in their charge, as we referenced above. If it is the case that more could – and should – have been done by the organisation to prevent a successful cyberattack from taking place, they could be negligent and may have breached the GDPR. If we can establish that they have breached the GDPR, that is when the victims of information exposure events could be entitled to claim compensation.
