The NCSC has a good page for individuals on data breaches, what to expect, and what to do next.

Most important thing is to stay vigilant to scams and unusual email/calls/texts. These social engineers can be incredibly convincing.
Many such scams involve organisations like you bank or email provider or mobile provider or such.

Data breaches suck!
