How was customer data breached at Equiniti?

A breach occurred at Equiniti, a company who provide support to manage company pensions. During the incident hundreds of annual benefit statements of Sussex police officers were sent to the wrong addresses. In the wrong hands this highly sensitive and personal data could be used to carry out illegal activities such as identity fraud and financial theft.

The nature of the information contained in the compromised statements was personal and highly sensitive data. The data breach was caused purely because the correct systems weren’t in place and new address information provided by Sussex Police wasn’t updated on systems by Equiniti. When statements were sent out, many ended up going to the wrong house.

While it is known what addresses the statements ended up being incorrectly sent to, there is no guarantee that those who received the statements, intended for the police officers, disposed of them immediately and in a secure way, such as shredding them. Information such as Name, Date of Birth, and National Insurance number can be highly useful to those looking to carry out fraudulent activity using someone else’s identity.

Frequently asked questionsQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

Why should I make a data breach claim against Equiniti?

People have the right to expect that any personal or financial data that they have shared with an organisation, such as Equiniti, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case a hack has enabled unauthorised access to your personal data, you can make a claim for compensation. When the breach first occurred the Police Federation told those affected by the Equiniti data breach that they did not have a claim but we disagree with this viewpoint. The Police Federation are now encouraging members to sign up to their legal attempts to secure compensation.

Bringing a data breach claim not only gets you access to compensation, but also holds a company or organisation to account for their actions. As a result, this will usually prompt them to take the necessary steps to boost their data security measures to ensure that such a breach cannot occur again.

How do I make a data breach claim against Equiniti?

If you think you may have a valid Equiniti data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries for you and confirm whether or not you have a valid claim worth pursuing.

We can put you in touch with legal experts who are putting together a group claim whereby the large number of police officers can be part of a collective claim for Equiniti data breach compensation. Even if the breach has not led to any direct financial losses to you, you are still entitled to claim compensation for distress caused by the data breach.
