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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.  

If you were affected by a business data breach, there’s no need at all to drain your resources in pursuing the case on your own. At Data Breach Claims, we put you in contact with solicitors who are experts in such matters.

There’s no risk at all on your side, as they operate on a No win, No Fee basis. They’ll look into your matter, and if it merits further action, be sure that they’ll do their best to get you fair and satisfactory compensation.
