The impact of the easyJet cyberattack
In May last year, it was announced that around nine million victims had been affected by the easyJet cyberattack. Although easyJet did not begin to notify customers of their involvement until April, continuing after the attack was publicised, they had identified that attack had been executed as early as January.
Most victims suffered an exposure of their travel details and email addresses, prompting easyJet to warn them of the risks of phishing scams, in which fraudsters use emails to trick victims into handing over money or private data. However, the most severe financial threat might have been for the victims who had their credit card and debit card information accessed, putting them at an immediate risk of theft and fraud.
Can I make a claim?
We know that the aftermath of a cyberattack or data breach can be an uncertain time for the victims, some of whom may not know what action to take or what their rights are. In fact, all victims of the easyJet cyberattack could be entitled to claim compensation under the GDPR.
By applying this data protection law, victims of the cyberattack could be eligible to make a claim, regardless of the type of information that was exposed. You may still have a case even if you weren’t affected by significant distress or financial loss, as your involvement in the breach alone could be a worthy cause for a claim.
Nevertheless, if you were affected by distress, a psychological injury, or financial loss, this could impact upon the potential value of your claim. We can carefully weigh up each claimant’s case to ensure they receive the maximum possible compensation amount.
