How much compensation could you receive following the Ticketmaster data hack?

ticketmaster data breach

Last month, Ticketmaster revealed that it was the target of a serious and severe data hack. Early estimates suggest that the attack compromised the personal and financial information of 40,000 people in the UK. However, the final number could be much higher.

Exploiting a weakness on the Ticketmaster payment site, hackers managed to access customer names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, payment details and Ticketmaster login details. And, it already looks like Ticketmaster customers have already had their cards fraudulently used on money transfer service Xendpay, Uber gift cards and Netflix (among other items).

Of course, today’s cybercriminals don’t just care about our bank details. They can also cause havoc with our name and other personally identifiable information. In fact, with enough data, cybercriminals can apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing accounts.

An ICO investigation is now underway into the Ticketmaster data breach, and if found responsible for this appalling data protection failure the ticket sales company will no doubt have to pay a hefty fine.

However, this is little compensation for victims who have suffered financial loss and/or stress due to Ticketmaster’s possible negligence.

So, while the ICO does not award data breach compensation, our data breach solicitors can help you with that.
