Data snooping attacks can be where information is exposed which allows cybercriminals to access, see, and potentially misuse the information in question.
In the Virgin Media data incident, an error led to the information of some 900,000 people being left exposed and easy to snoop on. In fact, investigations confirmed that an unknown third party, unfortunately, did access the exposed information.

There does not need to be actual financial details compromised for this kind of event to happen. Even personal details can act as a gateway for criminals to then get access to further information, or dupe people into handing over details.

Such events do happen, and they are commonly known as ransomware, which is where criminals will threaten to expose data unless a ransom demand is paid. This can cause significant distress for those who have been affected, and it may go on to cause losses and expenses if data is subsequently misused.

If you are worried about a data breach, there are several steps you can take to protect yourself, and there are steps you can take with the law on your side to seek some form of justice for what you have gone through.
The GDPR is the key data protection legislation in the UK that is not just there to govern good practice and management for data being processed and stored, it is also there to serve as punishment if a breach occurs. Whilst the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can issue monetary penalties, this money is not designed to then filter down to anybody who has been directly impacted by a data breach. Instead, what a victim can do is pursue their own private claim for compensation, and we may be able to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Too often we see companies dismiss data breaches, leaks and hacks as small things, where they will make comments about the fact that “no financial information” was affected, for example. Even if this is the case, this does not mean that the impact cannot be severe for those who are affected, which is why we pursue No Win, No Fee compensation cases for those who have lost control over their information through no fault of their own.
