LOQBOX data breach compensation claims

hackers

If you’re a victim of the recent LOQBOX data breach, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.

We’re already acting for several victims of the hack, and we may be able to help you too. Those affected by the breach could be entitled to claim compensation for distress and for monetary losses, and we’re representing clients right now as one of the dozens of data breach actions we’re fighting for justice in.

We assessed the action right away as we were contacted by victims soon after the breach notifications were sent to people. We accepted cases immediately, and we continue to do so.

About the LOQBOX data breach

Victims of the LOQBOX data breach were first notified that their information had been exposed due to a cyberattack on 20th February 2020.

LOQBOX had previously admitted that it may be hard to identify the full extent of those whose data has been hacked, and information exposed includes:

  • Names;
  • Email and postal addresses;
  • Telephone numbers;
  • Dates of birth;
  • Some payment card data, which may include digits of the long 16-digit card number and the expiration date.

In the wrong hands, this kind of information is more than enough for people to fall victim to serious crimes, including theft and identity fraud.

Claiming compensation

Victims of the LOQBOX data breach can be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us as part of the legal action that we’ve launched. We were contacted by concerned victims immediately, prior to news of the incident hitting the headlines.

We agreed to take cases on for victims right away, and victims could be entitled to receive compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. They may also be able to recover damages for any money lost or stolen as well.

It’s clear to us that LOQBOX being hacked could have been avoided. The announcement from the company suggests that more could have been done, and reads as follows:

“We became aware of the attack very shortly after it happened on 20 February 2020 at which point we immediately took steps to protect the system and your personal information. We constantly monitor our systems but have now taken further steps to improve the defences of the LOQBOX computer system.”

The fact that they have only “now taken further steps” suggests that more could – and perhaps should – have been done; especially when it comes to information as sensitive as this. A lack of care for cybersecurity often leads to breaches, as we have seen in other recent incidents like the Virgin Media data breach.
