Data Breach Claim Settled Against Sky Insurance
In December 2020, our client was sent an email from Sky Insurance to confirm a data breach had occurred in November 2020. The email outlined that in the event of the breach, personal information of the client was therefore disclosed.
The information that was breached is as follows:
- Full name
- Email address
- Date of birth
- Driving license number
- Vehicle registration number
All of which makes our client and his car identifiable, which could lead to further breaches and possible fraudulent/security issues, had the data got into the wrong hands.
Our client responded to the email notification, but never received a responsive from Sky Insurance. This is when our client instructed ourselves to act on his behalf for a data breach claim.
Our client was very worried that the information breached could limit his future endeavors such as mortgage applications and future credit scores and committing crimes as him.
Our client noticed a lot of spam emails since the breach but thankfully no financial losses has occurred as of yet. Our client ensured all password where changed to prevent third party access to any of his accounts as a precautionary measure.
Angelus Law acted fast and were able to secure a sum of £750.00 for our client in this data breach settlement. If you are a victim of a data breach subject to Sky Insurance, please contact is to pursue a claim today.
