A data breach refers to any situation where data has been put at risk. A data hack happens when criminals break into an organisation’s systems to steal information.
The impact of a data hack can be devastating. But despite this, cybercriminals are still getting away with billions of pounds worth of records each year.
To make matters worse, this information is often used to commit further crimes against victims of the initial breach. So it’s no wonder that people commonly suffer emotional anguish, anxiety and stress after a data hack.
At Keller Lenkner UK, our data breach lawyers help people to make successful data hacking claims to compensate for their loss and distress. Where enough people come forward, we do this by launching a group action case.
