Surge in Watford Community Housing data leak sign-ups
Over the last few days, the team here at the Group Action Lawyers has been busy helping people who have come forward as victims of the recent Watford Community Housing data leak.
There has been a surge in sign-ups following the breach email that was sent out recently, as well as additional notifications being sent to WCH customers affected. Some have only just discovered that they are affected having received letters to confirm that their data has been leaked.
This is a serious data leak with personal and sensitive information exposed, including sexual orientation information, religious beliefs and disability details.
What can you claim for?
Victims of the Watford Community Housing data leak could be eligible to receive compensation for the distress that is caused by the loss of control of personal information.
Many people do not want others to know certain information about them. This is why we have strict privacy rules here in the UK so we can respect everyone’s right to confidentiality. When an organisation like the WCH breaks that confidence, they can be liable to compensate victims in accordance with the GDPR. Compensation can be for the distress caused, and it can also be for any additional losses or expenses that may be incurred as well.
In today’s digital world, there are criminals out there who are prepared to use information for malicious purposes. When any data is exposed, there is often the risk that this may happen. This is something that we carefully consider as part of a case.
