Has your data been breached?

Has your personal data been compromised in a mass data breach? If so, don’t panic. Our team of experts is dedicated to protecting your privacy and ensuring those responsible are held accountable. From start to finish, we’ll guide you through the process to get the compensation you deserve. 

What is a personal data breach?

Personal information describes any data that can identify an individual. Either on its own or alongside other information. Organisations that use our personal data have a legal obligation to keep it safe. This is important because criminals regularly use stolen personal information to commit fraud, blackmail, and identity theft. 

A personal data breach happens when sensitive or confidential information is accessed, disclosed, or destroyed without authorisation. A data breach can have serious consequences for your privacy and security, so it’s important to take immediate action if you suspect that your personal data has been breached. 

Even where cybercriminals are not responsible for a data breach, the results can still be devastating. Privacy violations caused by admin errors and poor data security processes can cause considerable distress, upset, embarrassment and harm. 

At KP Law, we help groups of people make compensation claims when an organisation has not looked after their personal information correctly.  This is called making a group action claim.

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.

If you are a victim of a data protection breach, check out our current group actions to see if we are running a claim related to that specific breach.

If the action you want to join is not listed below, please contact us and tell us about it! Where enough people come forward, we may launch a new claim.

We do not take on individual cases.

Claim compensation if a technology company has breached your data protection or privacy rights

Get justice for a cybercrime

Cybercrime is preventable. And, in most cases, online theft and extortion can only happen when an organisation fails to invest in proper security to keep your data safe.

What can you claim for?

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 following a data breach, cybercrime or other GDPR violation:

Financial loss

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.


GDPR failures, 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 or otherwise do not uphold your GDPR rights.

How to protect yourself following a data breach or cybercrime

  • Contact your bank or credit card provider immediately if your financial data has been exposed.
  • Check all bills and emails for goods or services you have not ordered.
  • Check your bank account for unfamiliar transactions.
  • Alert your bank or credit card provider immediately if there is any suspicious activity.
  • Monitor your credit score for any unexpected dips.
  • Call Credit, Experian and Equifax to ensure credit isn’t taken out in your name.
  • Never provide your PIN or full password to anyone (even someone claiming to be from your bank).
  • Never been pressured into moving money to another account for fraud reasons. A legitimate bank won’t ask you to do this.
  • Follow the security instructions provided by the organisation that breached your data.
  • Never automatically click on any suspicious links or downloads in emails or texts.
  • Don’t assume an email or phone call is authentic just because someone has your details.
  • Be careful who you trust – criminals often use scare tactics to try and trick you into revealing your security details.
  • Know that, even if you recognise a name or number, it might not be genuine.
  • Don’t be rushed or pressured into making a decision. A trustworthy organisation would never force you to make a financial transaction on the spot.
  • Never provide your full password, pin or security code to someone over the phone (or via message). If a bank believes a transaction has been fraudulent, they will not ask for this information to cancel the transaction.
  • Listen to your instincts and ask questions if something feels “off”.
  • Refuse requests for personal or financial information and stop discussions if you are at all unsure.
  • Contact your bank or financial service provider on a number you know and trust to check if a communication is genuine.
  • Be cautious of unsolicited communications that refer you to a web page asking for personal data.
  • Don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know on social media.
  • Review your online privacy settings.
  • Report suspected fraud attempts to the police and Action Fraud.
  • Register with the Cifas protective registration service to slow down credit applications made in your name.
  • Change your passwords regularly and use a different password for every account (a password manager can help with this).
  • Protect your devices with up-to-date internet security software.
