Dixons Carphone data breach fine issued by ICO

Cybersecurity Virus

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued their Dixons Carphone data breach fine, and the amount is the maximum penalty available under the old rules.

This was a sustained cyberattack that lasted between July 2017 and April 2018, meaning that it has been dealt with in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The GDPR that could have allowed fines to be up to 4% of a company’s global annual turnover came into effect in May 2018; just weeks after the breach period ended. Had the breach period have lasted longer, a far greater penalty could have been issued. We have seen this with the provisional £183m issued for the British Airways data breach.

We are representing people who are claiming compensation from Dixons Carphone (DSG Retail Ltd) as one of the dozens of data breach group and multi-party actions that our lawyers are fighting for justice in.

drugs alert

If you’re suffering with valsartan side effects, you may want to read this article and take heed of some important information about the drug.

Last year, a Class 1 Medicines Recall was initiated by Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

When members of the Group Action Lawyers attended a conference in the U.S. last year, it was clear to us just how serious this issue could be.
