What is cyber breach compensation?

Cyber breach compensation is where victims can receive damages for the loss of control of their personal information arising from a cyber breach incident.

Cyber breaches can occur in many ways – they can arise from hacks, accidental disclosures, or leaks, as common examples, usually online. In the case of the Virgin Media data breach, it was a case of a cyber leak where information was left unsure and accessible online for a period of 10 months from April 2019 to February 2020. During the breach period, we know that at least one unknown third-party accessed the information, which worsens the exposure.

Because data has been exposed, this can constitute as a breach of the GDPR. If we can successfully establish that there has been a breach of the GDPR – and we believe that we can – victims could then be eligible to be compensated.

How much could you claim in this case?

Most cyber breach compensation cases will normally be made up of two parts:

  • General Damages: for the distress suffered as a result of the loss of control of personal information; and
  • Special Damages: for any losses incurred, or expenses paid out, that directly arise from a cyber breach.

Importantly, you can claim for just the distress alone. We expect that, in most cases, people will have a valid General Damages claim. However, if anyone has lost money from fraud or had to take time off work, or pay for extra security, these can be considered as Special Damages claims. These could then be added to the amount for the distress element.

We spoke to the media about our early initial estimations for what people could be entitled to receive. We exclusively revealed that pay-outs could reach up to £5,000.00.
