Confidential data held by legal firm copied in attack

01 August 2022

Data stored by a Derby legal firm has been exploited in a cyberattack, according to a local report.

Derbyshire Live reported that a hack targeted at Nelsons saw clients' personal details accessed.

Two of Nelsons’ clients, who wished to remain anonymous, say they only received notice that their details had been accessed six weeks after the incident, which took place May 30.

One client added that they have been informed that confidential data which gives details about their identification was hijacked during the cyber attack.

Nelsons also has branches in Leicester and Nottingham.
