A data breach occurs when unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of personal data takes place. It can result from cyberattacks, human error, or technical vulnerabilities.
Legal requirements for data breach response vary based on data protection regulations. Generally, organisations must assess and report breaches to relevant authorities and affected individuals, taking necessary actions to minimise harm. We help you to understand your requirements and comply.
