  • Loughborough University
  • University of Leeds
  • University of London
  • University of Reading
  • University College, Oxford

The data was targeted by hackers in May 2020 but it is only recently that Blakbaud has informed the universities

It’s not clear how many people have been affected by this data breach at any of the the Universities above, but if you’re a staff member, student or alumni of the university and you’re concerned that your data has been accessed as part of this breach, get in touch to see if you can claim compensation.

What law applies to this breach?

The law that protects your personal data is the Data Protection Act 2018.

You could potentially claim compensation from the University of York because they’ve failed to protect your personal data.

The data accessed by the hackers includes:

  • Name
  • Title
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Contact details including email addresses

This is all very valuable information.
