Latest high profile data breach shows importance of knowing your GDPR rights
There has been widespread coverage of the news that a Dublin based company which conducts liver screening procedures, Liver Wellness, has been affected by a significant data breach.
This data breach has brought into focus once again the important responsibilities that companies that hold personal data have under the GDPR.
When data breaches occur, there can be serious effects for the person affected. You may be concerned for the security of your sensitive and private health, financial or other personal information. You may be more vulnerable to scams from those who would seek to exploit the data breach and you may suffer financial loss.
