Up to 15 million people in the UK could have had their details compromised in the Equifax data breach. But Equifax still has not informed everyone who had their data privacy rights violated. This is because this breach occurred before the implementation of the GDPR when the rules around the reporting of data breaches were not as strict.

The UK’s data protection regulator – the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – has already found Equifax to be in breach of its data protection obligations and has fined the business as a result. But any money received by the ICO goes back to the Treasury, not victims of the data breach. The only way UK victims of the Equifax data breach can get compensation for any harm and/or distress experienced is to take legal action.
In the US, Equifax has agreed to pay over £400 million to compensate victims. UK consumers deserve compensation too.
