Compensation – the next penalty for a data breach?

We warn organisations about the consequences of a data breach on a daily basis: damage reputation, loss of customer confidence, ICO fines. The penalties are getting tougher and as consumer awareness of data protection grows, we believe the the ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claims will be on the rise too. The below advert was placed in Tuesday’s Yorkshire Post following the data breach at Betty’s. It’s the first we’ve seen of this type, but we doubt it will be the last.

    Bettys allowed my details to be stolen.

    I would like start a claim for compensation.

    What is the likelihood of success and has there been any successful claims to date?
