What is a Data Breach?

A breach occurs if personal data is destroyed, lost, altered or if there is unauthorised disclosure of or access to personal data as a result of a breach of security. HR can mitigate the risk of security breaches by properly vetting candidates, accounting for equipment, training employees to identify and escalate potential issues or areas of breach and building and cultivating a culture of compliance.
