Cloud data leaks: claiming compensation

We may see more and more cloud data leaks as society continues to move toward digital hosting and pulls away from physical hardware situated in an actual business premises.

A huge amount of the infrastructure that is now being deployed is used and stored in the cloud, so it is vulnerable to errors that can lead to leaks, or cyberattacks that can compromise whole systems.

Any defence is only as good as its weakest link, and the exact same can be said for how well protected and how secure information is from employee error. This is why defences, training, policies, and procedures must be the absolute best that they can be.

The risks of reusing passwords

In principle, most of us should recognise the value of creating complex, unique passwords for each of our online accounts, but many of us find it difficult to apply this principle in practice. Until we are directly confronted with a compromised security event, few of us may comprehend the risks of reusing passwords. It is for this reason that we think it’s important to reiterate the dangers of this fundamental security error, particularly in a world in which we are constantly facing the threats of cybercrime.

In the digital world, just one stolen or leaked password could allow a cybercriminal to unlock a wealth of valuable information. As hackers continue to develop more sophisticated methods, password misuse could be regarded as a growing phenomenon.

We are a firm of specialist data protection lawyers, so we know all too well the dangers that victims of information exposure can be made vulnerable to. In our capacity as data breach specialists, we want to empower our clients to protect their data security as far as they can, which is why we are offering this advice as a basic data protection strategy.
