Compensation for a Ministry of Defence data breach

data hack

If you have suffered information exposure or misuse arising from a Ministry of Defence data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Any breach, leak or hack could entitle a victim to pursue a legal case, and most people claim for the personal impact that a data breach has had on them. In a case involving the MOD, the impact could be serious. The GDPR is there to protect us, so any breach of it can mean victims are entitled to justice.

We will also briefly look at the recent incident involving the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (Arap) as a clear example of how serious an MOD data breach incident can be.

A recent example – Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (Arap)

You may have seen the recent news about the information leak involving the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (Arap). This is a particularly sensitive Ministry of Defence data breach incident given the unstable and hostile situation over in the county that the UK recently withdraw its military forces from. There have been news reports of a number of issues and violence in the wake of the Taliban retaking the country, and it is clear that those who have been assisting UK forces need protection.

The incident, unfortunately, leaked the personal details of people in Afghanistan who are eligible for the relocation scheme. The concerns are that the personal safety and well-being of the victims may now be at risk as a result of the data leak.

If anything, this incident is a clear example of why an MOD data breach can be so serious. They store and process a wealth of very personal and sensitive information, and its exposure could put people in real danger.

Claim compensation for a Ministry of Defence data breach

If you have been the victim of any form of Ministry of Defence data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation. If you are eligible to pursue a legal case with us, we may be able to assist you with a case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

In most claims, victims can be entitled to receive damages for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. If there are also losses and expenses to consider, those could also be claimed as part of a case also. But, in most claims, people are recovering damages for the loss of control element alone.

You could be owed thousands of pounds in compensation. As a specialist firm of Data Breach Lawyers, we have already recovered over £1m in damages for victims of mostly individual information and privacy exposure incidents, and we may be able to help you too.
