MoD Breach Victims Contact Law Firm

Barings Law has signed up 1000 potentially affected people.

Army personnel say they feel “let down” and fear losing their jobs over the recent payroll attack.

Barings Law has said it signed up more than 1,000 potentially affected claimants, with Adnan Malik, head of data privacy saying that there is a lot of anxiety and confusion for people who may have been affected.

“We are receiving hundreds of inquiries every day. Some are serving members of the armed forces who feel let down, others who have high security clearance are afraid they could lose their jobs,” Malik said.

“Their livelihoods are at risk, and they do not know how much of their personal information could have been shared online.

“It can be easy to forget when we see these huge Government data breaches that real people are impacted. We know how scary this is for them and want to help as many of the personnel who are affected as we can.”

Defence Secretary Grant Shapps said up to 272,000 service personnel may have been affected by the breach.
