The Best Way to Handle a Charity Data Breach

Data breaches are far more common in businesses than they are in charities. Furthermore, compromised data in companies is often the result of a cyberattack, whereas, in charities, data is more commonly lost due to carelessness.  

Even though the reported charity data breach incidence is not too numerous, the magnitude of some of them has been pretty alarming. Here’s what to do in the unfortunate event of finding out that your personal information held by a charity has been compromised.

What Exactly is a Charity Data Breach?

Data is commonly lost in one of two ways: through cyberattacks or through mishandling. The first type is often seen with big corporates, where the personal information of users could be utilised in financial fraud. 

The second type is associated with failure to store data properly, including the careless handling of paper documents. Occasionally, internal data breaches occur when the users’ information is sold or disclosed to a third party. A much less frequent occurrence is when said data is made public inadvertently. 

Charities usually face data breaches caused by carelessness, although there have been a couple of significant incidents where a cyberattack affected hundreds of organisations. It’s worth noting that the charities mostly targeted by cyber-attacks are those working in healthcare or education. 

The ICO report for the last year hasn’t highlighted much non-compliance among charities. And we haven’t seen outrageous fines similar to the ones businesses had to pay. However, the possibility for data breaches is always there, and there’s no reason to assume that they would go unnoticed.

The Biggest Charity Data Breaches in the UK

Even though there’s only a short list here, the incidents are extremely far-reaching. 

The Blackbaud Hack

Blackbaud is a cloud computing provider supporting a huge number of organisations. Around 125 universities, schools, churches, museums, and similar non-profits are believed to be affected by a recent breach in Blackbaud’s data. The extent of the breach and damages are still not fully known. However, the service provider has disclosed the breach, and the situation is still under investigation. 

Age UK

This is another data breach that has affected the personal information of around 5000 Age UK employees. Two attacks were reported, but they were unrelated, and the compromised data wasn’t too sensitive. The compensation for each employee was quite symbolic and amounted to only £20 per person.

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

How to Make a Claim if Your Data Was Compromised?

GDPR regulations stipulate that if you trust any party with your data, and it gets lost, destroyed, or stolen, then you have the right to receive fair compensation. 

Throughout the past few years, we’ve seen companies paying millions of pounds in damages and compensation. These figures were not as familiar in the domain of charities though. 

The vicious cyberattacks on business often target the personal and financial data of users. The sheer bulk of the available database makes these companies the proverbial jackpot for hackers. Charities are usually much smaller in size, and their databases contain different types of information. 

The cyber attacks on charities are thus driven by a different motivation. Sometimes it’s the acquisition of private medical records, which are sold in dark web markets. Other times it’s the detailed information on philanthropists, which facilitates defrauding well to do people in what appears to be benign donations. 

Whether the data was lost through incompetence, failure to secure the digital information, or by unlawful disclosure, you’re entitled to compensation. And to receive it, you’d need to make a claim for damages. 

The best course of action is to seek specialised legal services from trusted solicitors. If they have a proven track record in resolving such matters, then you’re in good hands.
