The Best Way to Handle a Business Data Breach

The UK, Germany, and the Netherlands top the list of the countries suffering the most from data breaches. In the past few years businesses have been fined millions of pounds and had to compensate users whose data was compromised. 

A business data breach is no longer a one off oddity. Cybersecurity is a serious issue, and everyday we hear about large and small companies being hit by an attack. 

Personal and financial information shouldn’t fall into the wrong hands. And that’s why the GDPR regulations are there to protect users’ information.

What Is a Business Data Breach?

Hackers set their sights on stealing other people’s personal information, and they use this data in identity theft, financial fraud, or any other malicious purposes. If they can get these accounts en masse, that’s even better for them. This leaves big businesses as the number one target for cyberattacks in the whole world. 

Faced by this grand threat, businesses have often tried to implement some measures to protect their customers’ data. However, properly securing databases costs a lot, and not all companies have always been willing to foot the bill for stringent cyber security measures. 

Data breaches in the business world aren’t limited to cyberattacks. Some serious leaks were caused by negligence, failing to store the data properly, holding the users’ information too long, or selling this data to a third party. 

Following some incredible data breaches, the EU took a bold step and issued a law that mandates the protection of personal data and sees that non-compliant companies get fined. Even though the UK is now outside the EU, it has implemented its own GDPR-UK, which essentially continues the protection initially afforded by the EU regulation.

The Worst Business Data Breaches in the UK

Data breaches in business could become extremely costly. Not to mention the direct hit to their reputations, the loss of customers’ trust, and the devaluation of these companies stocks. 

The worst part is when the businesses fail to report the breach once it takes place. Sometimes, they believe that they can contain the leak. Other times, they fall for a hostage situation with the hackers, where the bad guys block the users’ databases, and promise to set it free for a ransom. 

Here are some examples of large business data breaches:

Canva

Canva lost the login data of 137 million users in 2019. The bigger problem was that this was also attached to the Google accounts of millions of users. Thus, the personal and financial data of millions were vulnerable. And they didn’t even know it.  

Uber 

In 2016, The passenger and driver records of about 3 million Uber users were hacked. The breach wasn’t reported, as the company tried to pay off the hackers as much as £75,000. Things didn’t end there, and the leak was exposed. Uber was fined £385,000 for their negligence and mishandling of the problem.   

LinkedIn 

Another major data breach happened in LinkedIn in 2012, but it wasn’t disclosed till 2016. The full details of around 117 million users are believed to be compromised. The hacker who stole this data offered it for about $2000.

Frequently asked questions & Useful InfoQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

How to Make a Claim if Your Data Was Compromised?

Being the victim to such data breaches is distressing. The effects could range from dealing with an inconvenience, to handling financial loss, or worse. 

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the authority that investigates such incidents. And if a business is found responsible for the loss or corruption of personal data, then, they’re requested to compensate the affected parties. 

The best way to make a claim is to solicit the services of a professional legal firm. They know their way around such matters, so you wouldn’t have to reinvent any wheels while trying to make your case. They’ll also reach the best possible settlement, given all the facts.
