What is the Virgin Media data breach compensation action?

The Virgin Media data breach compensation action that has been launched is for those affected by the recent cybersecurity event that was announced earlier in March.

As a result of a “human error” event, the information for 900,000 had been left unsecure and exposed between April 2019 and 28th February 2020. During this breach period, at least one unknown third-party is understood to have accessed the information.

The action that has been launched is for victims to receive the justice that they deserve. If Virgin Media is fined by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), that money won’t be going to the victims. As such, those affected by the breach can make their own legal case for compensation with us. You could be eligible to receive thousands of pounds in damages for any distress caused by the incident and for any financial losses suffered also.

Getting started is easy

We understand the concern that people have when their personal data is misused or exposed. We’re only three months into 2020, and we’ve already seen the LOQBOX data breach, news of the MGM Resorts exposure and now Virgin Media exposing people’s information.

That’s why the work that we do is so important, and we strive to make sure that people can access the justice they deserve easily and on a No Win, No Fee basis.

To get started with your Virgin Media data breach compensation case, all you need to do is complete the simple forms here and we’ll do the rest for you.
