MAKING AN EDUCATIONAL DATA BREACH CLAIM
Schools must establish robust procedures for detecting, reporting, and investigating any personal data breaches. And the ICO must be notified of these violations without “undue delay.”
In addition, all personal information must be kept safe with security measures that are appropriate to the data held. This includes implementing strong passwords, encrypting electronic data, and making sure data is correctly destroyed.
Where a school fails in these obligations, we can help you make a claim.
Of course, you may not know that any data has been breached until you hear that the school has been fined by the ICO. In such cases, it’s worth finding out whether your data was put at risk, because, if so, you may have a claim for compensation. We can also keep you updated on upcoming and current educational data breach claim investigations.
We can make data breach claims against:
- Exam boards
Of course, it goes without saying that our process is fully compliant with ICO guidance and we never put your details at risk. We will NEVER pass your details onto anyone without your permission.
