As predominantly liability loss adjusting experts, we have a wealth and depth of experience in handling all classes of liability claim, including data protection claims.
We have a qualified GDPR practitioner and liability adjuster able to investigate any personal data breach. We establish the cause and extent of the breach and comment on the extent of any liability attaching to a controller and/or processor under the new regulation and the old DPA 1998.
As well as investigating claims, we help our clients to minimise risks of data protection breaches by advising on your compliance, please see our GDPR training and consultancy page for details.
Fines under the new data protection regulation could be crippling, up to €20,000,000 or 4% global turnover for breaches of principles, rights and freedoms of individuals and other articles, not to mention the rights of the individual and compensation for material and non material damages (See Article 82).
Industry commentators suggest that between 50% and 80% of businesses will not be ready for GDPR when the regulation comes into force in May 2018. An increase in the number and level of compensation claims is also likely once the public become aware of their rights under the regulation.
