Breach of Privacy Solicitors in Manchester and London
In today’s digital age with the vast advancements in technology and the widespread use of the internet, it is of paramount importance to enforce privacy measures to protect individuals’ personal information. A breach of privacy refers to the unauthorized disclosure or infringement upon an individual’s private information. Failure to protect individuals’ personal information can also result in a privacy breach where personal information can be accessed, used, or disclosed without the individuals’ consent or in a manner that violates their privacy rights. Instances of privacy breached can arise from data breaches, hacking incidents, unauthorized surveillance, identity theft, or improper handling of personal information by organizations.
All businesses in the European Union processing personal information of individuals need to abide by the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which enforces data protection and privacy of personal information in the EU.
Why is Privacy Important?
Privacy is a fundamental right that allows individuals to control the information they share about themselves and protect their personal lives from unwanted intrusion. It encompasses the right to keep personal matters confidential, maintain anonymity, and control the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data. Privacy is essential for maintaining trust, autonomy, and individuality in a society increasingly reliant on technology and information sharing.

Legal actions that can be taken include filing a civil lawsuit for damages, seeking an injunction to halt further violations, or reporting the breach to relevant regulatory authorities.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, which is a set of regulations designed to protect the personal data of individuals within the European Union (EU). A breach of GDPR occurs when an organization fails to comply with its requirements, such as mishandling personal data, not obtaining proper consent, or failing to implement adequate security measures to protect data from unauthorized access.
If a breach of GDPR occurs, it is crucial to act promptly and take appropriate steps to mitigate the impact. The first step is to assess the scope and severity of the breach, including identifying the affected individuals and the nature of the compromised data. Organizations should then notify the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, as required by GDPR. Additionally, affected individuals should be informed about the breach if it poses a high risk to their rights and freedoms. Remedial actions, such as enhancing security measures, conducting internal investigations, and implementing corrective measures to prevent future breaches, should also be undertaken. Seeking legal advice is advisable to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements throughout the breach response process.
