How much data breach compensation could you receive?


There are no guidelines about how much data breach compensation you can be awarded for a claim under the Data Protection Act. If you do go to court, it is up to the judge to consider all the circumstances, including the seriousness of the breach and the impact on you.

However, while each case is judged on its own merits, there are some things we would typically look for when it comes to when claiming compensation for a data breach.

What we look for when making a data breach compensation claim

Financial losses

With stolen data, cybercriminals can make purchases using your bank and credit cards, apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing online accounts.


Cybercrime and data breaches can have a significant impact on you, both mentally and physically.  They can cause or exacerbate anxiety, stress and other psychological conditions.

Loss of privacy

Your data has value, and organisations must be held to account if they fail to protect your right to data privacy.
