ABOUT US

TL;DR We champion credit for ethical security researchers,
clarity & transparency for individuals, and accountability for corporations.

Who are we?

Breaches.uk is a project by TurgenSec, an R&D focused Cybersecurity company recently responsible for the disclosure for a number of significant UK data breaches (Virgin Media, 193 Law Firms).

The aim of this project is to provide up to date and reliable breach notifications to the UK, with a dual focus of supporting ethical security research and providing actionable information for impacted individuals.

What's in it for us

When individuals are exploited, blackmailed, scammed, robbed or otherwise damaged as a result of their data being breached, we help them get compensation.

We take a referral fee for individuals referred to trusted (and security & ethically vetted) legal partners, who in turn operate on a no-win no-fee basis that is supported by their business insurance. If you believe in and want to support our mission - please mention our name - if not, no worries.

This money is used to fund ethical security researchers to choose to make more breach disclosures by supporting them legally, with advice, and acting as a trusted party for publication. We aim to encourage more researchers to speak up about discovered breaches and come to us instead of dark web marketplaces, increase the reach of these disclosures, as well as provide advisory commentary on breaches for spreading best practice.

Our hope is that this will reduce net damage to individuals due to cyber attacks or negligence, and increase accountability for corporations that do not employ proper due diligence, Secure by Design or Secure by Default principles. To be completely transparent, publicising these breaches helps organisations realise the value in our services, too, which is an added bonus for us.
