How was data breached at People's Energy?

On 16th December 2020 People’s Energy discovered that an unauthorised third party had managed to access one of the system’s used to some of their member’s data. They have stated that as soon as they became aware of the breach they acted quickly to close down the route the hackers were using to get into the system and to stop them accessing any further information. All 270,000 members had certain information accessed. This included:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Email addresses
  • Account numbers
  • Tariff details
  • Gas and electricity meter identification numbers

 

People’s Energy has said that account passwords were not affected during the hack and remain secure. For a small number of members some partial financial data was compromised but those people have been contacted by People’s Energy.

Can I make a data breach claim against People's Energy?

If you are one of the 270,000 members who have been affected by the People’s Energy data breach then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. Anyone whose personal data was part of the hack will have been notified by People’s Energy.

We can put you in touch with expert data breach solicitors who are putting together a collective group claim that will bring together the large number of People’s Energy members. If you are a People’s Energy member and received notification about involvement in the data breach, you are eligible to join our group claim.

Even though in the majority of cases no financial information was disclosed compensation is still payable for any distress you may have experienced as a result of the data breach. The personal data that was accessed could lead to other fraudulent activity like phishing attacks and those that were affected might have suffered some anxiety about that. Also, for those who did have some financial information compromised there is further risk.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bringing a 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.

In this case, People’s Energy have revealed that they are working with a dedicated external security team to install additional protection to their systems. Also, financial details will be kept in a separate system with extra security.

With enough information, cyber criminals could apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing accounts. Even though mostly financial data was not taken, there is still a lot of information that can be collected from an email account. You should be extra vigilant, some of the ways you can keep your details safe are:

  • Look out for suspicious emails and don’t click links within emails you don’t recognise
  • Delete texts from any names or numbers you don’t know
  • Alert People’s Energy to any suspicious or unsolicited emails that appear to come from them

If you think you may have a valid People’s Energy data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries regarding your claim and confirm whether or not you have a case worth pursuing.

Our recommended experts will act for you on a No Win, No Fee basis, meaning there is no risk to you in making a claim and nothing to pay in the unlikely event we take on your claim and you don’t win compensation. We can help you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your People’s Energy data breach claim, so if you’ve received notification about the data breach, or think that your personal data may have been part of the breach, be sure to start a claim with us today.
