How was data breached at Flintshire Council?

In July 2020 Flintshire Council was criticised after a data breach saw the personal details of hundreds of respondents to a large housing blueprint were made public. A consultation was held on the council’s Local Development Plan which set out the locations where up to 7,000 new homes could be built over the next decade. Hundreds of residents responded with their concerns over whether the area’s schools and health services could cope with an increase in population. When their comments were published on the council’s website however, it was discovered their addresses, phone numbers, and even places of work could be accessed despite attempts by the staff to hide them.

Can I make a data breach claim against Flintshire Council?

If you are one of the local residents whose personal details were exposed on the Flintshire Council website you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. The authority did acknowledge those who were impacted by the breach and assured that they were taking the matter seriously. However, the incident still occurred, and it has been revealed that the software they were using at the time to protect personal details was not adequate.

We can put you in contact with expert data breach solicitors who are putting together a collective group claim that will bring together a large number of Flintshire residents.

Compensation is payable not only for specific financial or other losses you have experienced but also for any distress caused by the data breach which could have left you exposed to the risk of fraudulent activity.

Frequently asked questionsQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

Why should I make a data breach claim against Flintshire Council?

People have the right to expect that any personal or financial data that they have shared with an organisation, such as Flintshire Council, 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. This situation has pushed the council to improve the software they are using and better their security in general to avoid it happening again in the future.

The breach has led to the personal information of an unknown number of people who supported one particular housing site being used maliciously on a private Facebook page. This would be highly distressing for those involved and even though the data was only exposed for three hours it was enough time for people to use it negatively on social media. The exposure of this information could also lead to increased vulnerability for the victims to phishing attacks.
