£100 million data breach claim against Equifax

North West based data breach and cybersecurity specialist Hayes Connor Solicitors is the first in the UK to serve a representative data breach claim in the High Court.

The action could see Equifax ordered to pay up to £100 million in compensation to its estimated 15 million UK customers affected by its 2017 data breach.

The action follows the Court of Appeal’s decision on the Lloyd v Google case on 2nd October which ruled that a law firm could bring a claim for compensation for just one affected individual following a data breach and be awarded compensation for the entire affected population.
