Before we dive into the facts about Data Breaches, we need to identify what a Data Breach is.

A Data Breach is when an unauthorised person gets access to confidential information such as credit card numbers, customer data, social security numbers or trade secrets.

Due to the increased use of technology, companies are becoming more and more digital, making their data and services much more vulnerable to cyber-attack.

Anyone can fall victim to a cyber attack that results in a data breach — individuals, large and small organisations, governments and the military. More importantly, anyone can put others at risk if they are not protected and well educated against cyber attacks such as phishing emails.

Usually, Data Breaches occur from weaknesses in technology or negligent user behaviour.

One of the most obvious negative impacts a Data Breach can have on organisations is the loss of trust that customers experience after they have learned their private data was exposed.

Another impact can be the uncalculated cost of interrupting the normal activities of the company owing to the cyber attacker.
