Hacked Cybersecurity

Has your information been exposed in the recent Robert Dyas data breach? Our team is on hand to offer free, no-obligation advice and No Win, No Fee compensation options.

If any money has been lost or stolen as a result of a fraud event that’s directly linked to the cyberattack, this could also be included on top of a claim for distress.

Read on for more information about the breach and how we are helping victims of this cyberattack with legal representation for justice.

About the Robert Dyas data breach

Victims of the recent Robert Dyas data breach have received notification from the company that their information may have been exposed in an unauthorised access event.

For many, names and addresses may have been exposed. Unfortunately, credit and debit card information is also understood to be involved, which means that some victims may have been put at an immediate risk of fraud. Normally, hackers will target this kind of data so they can either use it themselves to commit fraud or sell it on for others to misuse it instead. At the very least, victims should contact their bank and follow the advice issued in relation to compromised account details.

According to the notification sent out to victims, Robert Dyas was made aware on 30th March 2020 that “malicious software (malware) had been uploaded on to our ecommerce website by an external third party”. They confirmed that their IT Security Team were put on the case and that “the malware had been used to access some customer data on transactions made between 7th March and 30th March 2020.”

As data had been exposed for a sustained period of time, some people may have already fallen victim to fraud events before they became aware that their data is in the hands of criminals.

No Win, No Fee legal representation

We believe that victims of the Robert Dyas data breach may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. As such, for those who are eligible to claim with us, we’re offering No Win, No Fee representation.

We only work in this way when we’re confident enough that a legal case or an action can succeed. Given that the breach appears to have taken place over a sustained period of time, and given that Robert Dyas stated after they discovered the breach that “our IT Security Team took immediate steps to close the vulnerability so that no further data could be accessed”, this may have been a preventable incident. If we can prove that it was, we may be able to establish negligence against them which can pave the way for victims to be able to make a successful claim for compensation.

This is why we can offer the No Win, No Fee representation. As huge believers in access to justice, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
