personal data breach image showing GDPR

All businesses and organisations both public and private are required to hold any personal and private data securely.

Unfortunately, not all companies take their obligations as seriously as others and as a consequence, they have allowed your personal and private data to be sent to other parties.  This can either be as a result of failed security, human error or simple stupidity on their part.

The rules regarding the protection of your data are strict.  They state that if the company has allowed your data to leak into the public domain, then you are entitled to substantial compensation from that company because of their failures.  This can be because not only have they allowed your confidential and private information to be leaked but they have held your data longer than necessary and/or stored false, inaccurate or out of date data and information about you.  Their legal obligations are clear.  They have to adequately protect your information from data hackers, not disclose your information to third parties without your consent, not use your information or data outside of their stated purpose.

This is enshrined in the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and all businesses both private and public, are perfectly aware of their legal obligations.

You can report this breach to the Information Commissioner if you wish using their website, ico.org.uk.
