A data breach is a cyber attack in which sensitive, confidential or protected data is exposed to an unauthorized person or a group of people without the consent of the data owner. The data exposed can be used for identity theft, financial crimes and obtaining loans. Data breaches can affect individuals, small businesses and large corporations. The dangers of a data breach may depend on the type of data that is involved in the breach. It is best to identify the breach early and take action to prevent further losses.
