If you were a victim of one or both of the Lancaster University data breach incidents, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

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.

What has happened?

The Lancaster University data breach incidents involved two cyber attacks that have led to the potential exposure of personal and sensitive information for a number of students and applicants.

One of the attacks is understood to have affected 2019 and 2020 applicants, and the following information may have been exposed:

  • Names;
  • Addresses;
  • Email addresses;
  • Telephone numbers.

The second attack reportedly involved the student records system, and information which includes identification documents may have been exposed.

In the wrong hands, this kind of information could result in theft and cases of identity fraud.

You should be promptly informed if you were a victim of one or both the Lancaster University data breach incidents. If you have received news that your information may have been exposed, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with us.
