Data Breaches Caused By Human Error

Has your personal data been compromised due to human error or poor processes? If so, our team of experts can help ensure you the compensation you deserve. If you are a victim of a data protection failure, check out our current group actions below to see if we are running a claim related to that specific breach. 

Claim compensation if poor processes or human error resulted in your data becoming breached

Despite fears about hackers, most personal data breaches are caused by simple mistakes and poor data security processes. Indeed, according to the UK’s data protection regulator. 75% of breaches were “non-cyber incidents.” 

Common causes for data violations caused by human error include:  

    • Data sent to the wrong recipient  
    • Loss of theft of paperwork  
    • Failure to redact data  
    • Failure to use bcc when sending an email 
    • Unencrypted devices being lost or stolen 

Our data protection solicitors have helped tens of thousands of clients who have suffered as a direct result of a data breach. And, while some of these cases follow high-profile cyberattacks, in many instances, seemingly small mistakes are responsible for the breach.  

Don’t let the negligence of others go unchecked. It’s time to take action and claim the compensation you deserve. By holding companies accountable for their poor processes or human error, you can help protect not only yourself but also others from falling victim to data breaches. 

At KP Law, we help people make compensation claims when an organisation has not looked after their personal information correctly. 

KP Law is a group action law firm. With a group action claim, you and the other victims join together and fight to get compensation. Group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.
