A data breach involves unauthorized access to sensitive, protected, or confidential information, often resulting in data theft, exposure, or alteration.
The methods employed by cybercriminals to perpetrate these breaches are continually evolving, ranging from hacking and malware attacks to phishing schemes and insider threats. The consequences of a data breach can be severe, leading to financial losses, reputational damage, legal liabilities, and even regulatory fines.
