We believe that achieving the points above will have a greater impact on national (and international) cyber security than any other single service or innovation in the near future.
Breaches.uk is a project by TurgenSec, an R&D focused Cybersecurity company responsible for the continual disclosure of significant UK data breaches.
Our aim 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.
When individuals are exploited, blackmailed, scammed, robbed or otherwise damaged as a result of their data being breached, we help them get compensation.
We 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.
Full credit for security researchers. Actionable information for those impacted by a breach, links to financial compensation and advice. Commitment to doing the right thing.
Openness and clarity are at the heart of the work we do, here are the cornerstones of our efforts:

People with strong knowledge of the Computer Misuse act in the UK or abroad would be very much appreciated, including those who have learned practically through making disclosures.
