Breaches can be mistakes eg sending information to the wrong email address .
Compensation for data breach is usually in 2 parts:
- You can usually recover something for the breach itself and any distress that the breach has caused you.
- You may have suffered financial loss as a result of the data breach and can claim for this also.
