Hayes Connor Solicitors releases 2019 data breach report

  • Posted on

At Hayes Connor Solicitors, we help our clients to claim data breach compensation following privacy violations, GDPR breaches and other cyber offences. A relatively new and evolving area of law, this is all we do. Consequently, we have become a specialist in data protection law, and we lead our field when it comes to understanding the complexities involved.

To help raise awareness of data breaches, each year we will be taking a look at some of the key developments that have occurred over the last 12 months. By shedding some light on events, we hope to raise awareness of the importance of data privacy. And help businesses and individuals to become fully protected in our increasingly online world.

Our 2019 data breach report is now available

In our report you can find out about:

  • Why we believe that the majority of data violations are entirely avoidable
  • Recent changes to data protection law
  • Key data privacy trends
  • And more.

With an overview of the year, we also look at some high-profile data breaches that have occurred this year, ICO fines, and where we are up to with key cases.

What's more, in 2019, we celebrated a number of significant wins and developments at our firm. And in this report, we share some of these with you.


Data protection solicitors

At Hayes Connor, we are true experts in data protection law. This is all we do, and we have been doing it longer than most other solicitors. We lead our field when it comes to understanding the complexities involved. What's more, we have been working to defend consumer rights for over 50 years.

As well as our experienced lawyers, our team also includes some of the UK's best data breach barristers. This ensures our clients get the very best level of legal support available.

A lack of care and understanding about data breach law can leave victims open to advice and representation below the standard expected. And this could see people lose out financially as a result. But, despite being the most experienced data protection solicitors around, we also provide no-win, no-fee funding arrangements. So our clients don't have to worry about costs. There are no hidden charges or administration fees.

Importantly, while we are experts in group actions, we also deal with smaller individual cases. And we understand that for those involved the experience can be devastating. So, regardless of the details, we never belittle anyone's experience.

And, because making a data breach claim is stressful enough without having to chase your solicitor, we provide regular updates, so our clients always know what's happening.

Together, this experience and expertise in data protection law ensure that our solicitors are unmatched in the UK.
