Although the data breach originated elsewhere at US cloud computing and software provider Blackbaud in May 2020, it still had an impact on National Trust volunteers and fundraisers. All affected people had a right to expect the data they had provided to the organisation was secure, and by being entrusted to an external cloud storage company whose security systems were breached by cyber criminals, meant that they were let down and their data was compromised.
While none of the 5.6 million National Trust members were affected, there were still a significant number in the heritage organisation’s volunteering and fundraising communities who were caught up in the breach. The leaking of personal details such as name, date of birth, gender and address can be significant, especially when it ends up in the hands of those looking to use it for fraudulent purposes.
If you are one of the volunteers or fundraisers for National Trust who have been affected by the data breach you could be entitled to claim compensation. Blackbaud, who had been holding some of National Trust’s data, did not inform the National Trust of the breach until 16 July, and the Trust made their volunteers aware on 7 August that some of their sensitive data was affected, and said that no financial data had been exposed. Later reports have suggested that some financial data may have been included in the breach.
As a result of the cyber incident at Blackbaud, which affected National Trust volunteers past and present, you could be eligible to make a National Trust data breach claim for compensation. The National Trust will have sent a communication in August 2020 to anyone affected to inform them that their data was part of the breach.
