What Does Data Breach Mean?

A data breach is a cybersecurity incident where malicious insiders or external hackers gain unauthorized access to data or sensitive information, including medical records, financial information, or personally identifiable information (PII).

Data breaches are the most common type of cybersecurity incident, as well as the most costly. No matter the size of the business, industry, or geography, they occur all too often. In heavily regulated industries like healthcare and financial services, there are laws in place that can lead to costly fines and legal payouts. Data breaches can include:

  • Accidental web or internet exposure
  • Unauthorized access
  • Data on the move
  • Employee error, negligence, improper disposal, or loss
  • Hacking or intrusion
  • Insider theft
  • Physical theft

Security experts recommend businesses adopt an in-depth security strategy, implementing layers of defense to protect against and mitigate a wide range of data breaches.
