Zellis Data Breach Compensation

The rise of cyber attacks throughout the years has resulted in many large companies losing information that is vital to customers. This has resulted in a lot of stress and sometimes even threats of ransom, which has resulted in many victims receiving large payouts. 

Zellis is a payroll company that does work for many large companies. Among them are: 

  • Boots
  • British Airways
  • DHL
  • BBC
  • AON
  • DPD
  • MOVEit

Considering the company is a payroll company, this means those receiving payments from their employers through them may have had their data compromised. 

If you are unsure whether or not your company uses Zellis to pay you, we advise checking with him. Should it turn out to be true, you could be entitled to compensation. In cases where financial information is leaked, the value of the compensation goes up much higher.

Why are people making compensation claims against Zellis?

Zellis is a payroll company that manages pay between employers and employees. An app that the company uses, called MOVEit, had a vulnerability in the system that was exploited heavily, allowing a Russian hacker group to gain access to highly sensitive data that has affected companies across the UK. 

It wasn’t long after the breach was discovered that this hacker group, named Clop, began to give out demands for money in exchange for the safe deletion of the information. If not, they threaten to release the information publically.

For an idea of how disastrous this could be, the following are the details being held: 

  • Names
  • Contact Details (Addresses, Emails) 
  • Dates of Birth
  • National Insurance Numbers
  • Banking Details 
  • Pay and Reward Details
  • Miscellaneous information relating to specific job roles. 

This breach has prompted a detailed investigation by ICO and the UK National Cyber Security Centre. There’s no word on whether or not the ransom will be paid at this point and time.

What makes me eligible for a Zellis Data Breach Compensation Claim?

It’s a common misconception that you need to have suffered financial loss due to a breach to make a claim, but this is not necessarily the case. For many individuals, a privacy breach can cause significant distress, which is a valid reason for claiming damages. Zellis was legally obligated to prevent any unauthorised access to confidential customer data.

It’s straightforward and quick to ascertain your eligibility to make a claim. All it takes is a click of a button and filling in a few straightforward details. We will connect you with legal experts who will reach out to discuss your potential claim and the ideal course of action.

We are committed to assisting you in securing the best possible representation. There’s no need to worry about upfront payment for your claim, as all the attorneys we partner you with operate on a no-win, no-fee basis.

Company response to the incoming Zellis Data Breach Compensation Claim.

A statement by Zellis was released on the 6th of June. 

“We can confirm that a small number of our customers have been impacted by this global issue and we are actively working to support them. All Zellis-owned software is unaffected and there are no associated incidents or compromises to any other part of our IT estate.”

“Once we became aware of this incident we took immediate action, disconnecting the server that utilises MOVEit software and engaging an expert external security incident response team to assist with forensic analysis and ongoing monitoring. We have also notified the ICO, DPC, and the NCSC in both the UK and Ireland. We employ robust security processes across all of our services and they all continue to run as normal.”

We cannot help but believe Zellis is trying to downplay the possible damages done. After all, Zellis has a lot of customers, a small amount still means thousands of people. 

As a reminder, the companies affected by the Zellis Data Breach are: 

  • BBC
  • DHL
  • British Airways
  • Boots
  • AON
  • MOVEit
  • DPD

Considering the number of employees these companies have, the fallout from this attack could be huge.

What do those affected do in the meantime?

Aside from beginning your Zellis Data Breach Compensation Claim with us, you should take steps to ensure that you are protected as much as possible from any fallout that may occur. 

Here are some steps for what you could do: 

  1. Change Security/Passwords: If there’s been a breach involving your personal credentials, the first course of action is to modify your security phrases immediately. Make sure your new passwords are robust and unique, and refrain from duplicating passwords across multiple platforms.
  2. Activate dual-step verification (2FA): 2FA provides a supplementary protective barrier by demanding dual means of identity confirmation. Typically, this includes a piece of information you’re aware of (like a security phrase) and an item you possess (like a smartphone).
  3. Keep tabs on your financial transactions: Regularly scrutinize all of your monetary accounts for any irregular activities. If you notice anything doubtful, notify your banking institution or card provider without delay.
  4. Be cautious of deceptive communications: Cybercriminals frequently use stolen data to execute phishing operations. Stay cautious of any unanticipated emails, text messages, or phone calls requesting personal data and always cross-verify the origin.
  5. Review your financial standing reports: Periodically examine your financial standing reports for any indications of illegal activities. This service is offered gratis by credit reference organizations in the UK such as Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.

Charles Carmakal, CTO of Mandiant Consulting Google Cloud, said: 

“At this stage, it is critical for victim organisations to prepare for potential extortion, publication of stolen data, and victim shaming. It is likely that the threat actor will soon begin to make contact with extortion demands and begin to work through their list of victims. Mandiant’s investigations into prior campaigns from the suspected threat actor show that extortion demands are usually in the 7- or 8-figure range, including a few demands for more than $35 million.

“Any organisation that had the MOVEit web interface exposed to the internet should perform a forensic analysis of the system, irrespective of when the software was patched. There may be further waves of exploitation and data theft, so implement the patch or mitigations. Additionally, subsequent waves may include the deployment of ransomware encryptors. Watch out for scammers too. Some of our clients impacted by the MOVEit exploitation received extortion emails over the weekend. The extortion emails were unrelated to the MOVEit exploitation and were just scams, but organisations could easily confuse them as being authentic.”
