What is a Data Leak?

Data leaks happen when an organisation provides confidential information to an untrusted recipient. This includes any form of unapproved transmission of data to an external party, electronically or physically. 

This criminal act, however, isn’t always intentional. In fact, just under a fifth of all data leak cases happen by accident. Examples include sending confidential information to the wrong email address and mishandling a file containing private info and carelessly placing it.

How Can I Make a Data Leak Claim?

There are multiple steps that you should take once you suspect a data breach that involves your private information. These steps are as follows:

  1. Confirm that your information was among the breached data. In many cases the organisation responsible will inform you about a breach themselves, as they are legally obliged to do, but if you suspect a data breach then contact the company where the breach occurred. Beware, as some scammers may send false information regarding a non-existent breach in an attempt to steal your information.
  2. Find out what kind of data was breached. This can help you to act quickly by replacing credit card information, changing email credentials, etc. 
  3.  Seek independent legal advice by contacting us so we can provide you with the expert help you need to make a data leak claim.

What Are Some Examples of a Data Leak?

Essentially, any event that exposes private information in an unwanted or harmful way is considered a data leak. A few common examples are as follows:

  • Unintentionally sending private data to the wrong recipient.
  • Losing any electronic or physical item that contains private information, whether by loss or theft. These items can include laptops, smartphones, or even paper documents. 
  • Fake malicious websites that ask the user to provide their account or financial information.
  • Malware, such as viruses or trojans, that are used to hack your device, therefore gaining access to personal information.
  • Electronically sending private data without any type of password protection and/or sending the password in the same email. 
  • An employee forwarding company documents that contain sensitive information to their own email or downloading it on their device.

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

What Are the Consequences of Data Leaks?

Data break is a serious cybersecurity issue that can result in identity theft or fraud, financial loss, and reputational damage. The full repercussions of data leaks are rarely immediate; they rather tend to happen over time. That’s why it’s called low and slow data theft.

Therefore, it’s essential to report data leaks if you suspect or witness them occurring around you. Doing so will limit the damage of the break by bringing it under control.

When Can I Make a Data Leak Claim?

You can claim compensation for the leakage of your data if an organisation caused your private information to be exposed, intentionally or unintentionally. Note that you have the right to make the claim whether you’ve been directly harmed by the leak or not. 

However, cases where the victim has suffered material or non-material damages, such as financial harm and emotional distress, respectively, are far more solid and easier to win.

How Much Compensation for Personal Data Leak?

Data leak compensation is a financial form of restitution paid by the data-leaking party to whoever was harmed by the leakage. The amount of compensation for the leakage of data will essentially be up to the Court. The financial value may range from hundreds of pounds to thousands. 

Many factors are taken into consideration to evaluate the seriousness of the Data Protection Act violation, including the following:

  1. The sensitivity of the data leaked. 
  2. The number of people who benefited from the breach.
  3. Duration of time between the data breached and being informed about it. 
  4. The financial loss or damages you suffered.
  5. The emotional distress you experienced.
