If you are employed by Arup, your sensitive, personal data breach could have been breached in a major 'cyber security incident'.
The professional services firm told staff that their third party payroll provider was targeted in a ransomware attack.
You could be eligible to make a GDPR compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you are still working for Arup and are worried about making a GDPR Compensation Claim against your employer, don't be. It won't affect your job and they'll have insurance in place for this reason.
What Data Was Breached?
We're not sure how many people have been affected by the breach, but even former staff members back as far as November 2018 could be at risk.
So far, we know that the following information has been exposed:
- First names and surnames
- Dates of birth
- National Insurance Numbers
- Bank account details including the account number and sort code
Arup are working with the third party payroll provider now to understand how this serious breach happened.
