Impact of data breaches like the Virgin Media event should not be ignored


data breach distress compensation

As a leading firm of data breach and consumer action specialists, we know all too well just how bad the impact of data breaches like the Virgin Media event can be.

This is why we do what we do. We are here to be the voice for justice for those whose rights to privacy have been violated, and we can achieve some form of justice by way of a compensation claim. The GDPR can allow victims of a data breach whose private information has been exposed or misused to receive compensation, and we are here to represent them.

The impact for those affected by the Virgin Media data breach could be substantial. This could especially be the case for anyone whose sensitive contract data was also exposed in the breach, which may affect over 1,000 of the 900,000 victims.

Impact of data breaches like the Virgin Media event

The impact of data breaches like the Virgin Media event cannot be understated. The personal information for some 900,000 people was left exposed and unsecured for a significant period of time – a breach period of around 10 months between April 2019 and February 2020.

During this time, we know that at least one unknown third-party had accessed the information. As such, it could be used for fraud and identity theft, as well as for other scams where the victims are targeted. We also know from experience that scammers do make contact with data breach victims and pose as legitimate companies by using exposed information. People can easily fall victim to serious scams and fraud as a result.

As such, the impact of data breaches on victims can be severe. Victims can suffer serious distress that is caused by the loss of control of their personal information. They could also lose money to scams and fraud or end up paying money out as a result of losses incurred due to a breach.

What could you claim for?

If you have received confirmation that you are affected by the Virgin Media data leak, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

You may be eligible to receive damages for the distress suffered by the loss of control of your information. On top of this, you could also be eligible to recover damages for any losses and expenses as well.
