Facebook Faces Data Breach Claim

This week Hausfeld, a leading international law firm lodged a representative action for a journalist representing up to a million claimants in a case against Facebook

In what the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) described as “a very serious data incident”, Facebook had permitted thisisyourdigitallife app to harvest the personal information, not only from the users of the app, but also from all their Facebook friends – none of whom had given consent.

Facebook’s clear failure to protect its users’ data will put the focus on damage value suffered by clients and the data compromised.

The Supreme Court will have the final say on this case in April, and if the ruling is upheld (as expected), it could open the flood gates to many further similar claims.
