In recent developments, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has experienced a significant data breach involving the sensitive pay details of military and civilian personnel. This breach has exposed private financial information, leaving many individuals vulnerable to identity theft and financial fraud.

If you have been affected by this data breach, Reid Black Solicitors is here to help. Our experienced legal team specialises in data breach claims and is committed to securing justice and compensation for those impacted. We also have brought more cases against the MOD in the UK than any other firm and have experience in how to succeed in cases against the MOD.

Understanding the Data Breach

The MoD data breach has potentially compromised the financial details of numerous individuals, potentially including:

  • Full names
  • Bank account numbers
  • Sort codes
  • Salary information
  • National Insurance numbers

Such breaches of sensitive information can lead to severe consequences, including unauthorised access to bank accounts, fraudulent transactions, long-term financial damage and most importantly increase security risks.

Your Rights Under Data Protection Laws

Under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), individuals have the right to expect that their personal data is handled securely and responsibly. When these obligations are breached, affected individuals are entitled to seek compensation for:

  • Financial losses
  • Emotional distress
  • Costs incurred to mitigate the breach (e.g., credit monitoring services)
  • Loss of privacy
