Data protection compensation claims continue to manifest themselves on a daily basis. Understanding a data incident, and how to respond in an appropriate manner, is vital to combatting this growing threat.

Judgments through 2021 were largely favourable to those facing such claims, whilst the Supreme Court in Lloyd v Google put an end to Mr Lloyd's mass claim for loss of control of data. But the threat still exists.

On Wednesday 26 January 2022, David Cook and Benjamin Fellows will:

  • Discuss the right to compensation under the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018.
  • Recap the position on distress based claims.
  • Cover important judgments in 2021, and how these have impacted the data claims landscape.
  • Highlight the type of matters we are seeing in practice, claimant expectations, DLA Piper's strategy and approach to handling such claims and minimising client risk.
  • Consider the future of group litigation in the data breach context and why Lloyd is not necessarily the end of the mass claims threat.

David has over a decade of experience advising clients on contentious cyber security and data protection matters, including regulatory, civil and criminal litigation matters, as well as internal investigations and technical security controls.

Benjamin has spent time in-house at the Information Commissioners' Office, and regularly advises clients following data incidents, including in relation to civil claims for damages in the County and High Courts.

The webinar is the second in an annual series in which we update clients on the data claims landscape, and we hope you can join us.
