Data Breaches 2020

by Olivia Johnson

In 2020, date leaks, also known as”data breaches”, have now become a term that we hear about in the news more often than ever before. What is a data breach, exactly, and why are these becoming common? Data breaches are a growing cybersecurity concern for both businesses and individuals alike.

 

What is a data breach?

A data breach exposes a person’s or a company’s confidential information. It’s generally either performed by a cyberattack, ransomware, malware, or unintentional exposures. The data breach may result in identity theft and/or exposure of business trade secrets which results in a violation of industry/federal government compliance mandates.

 

What are the different types of data breaches?

Depending on the source, there are several different ways of describing types of data breaches. Here are 4 common types:

Cyber attacks – this is when hackers use various techniques to get unauthorized access to information that should be secure. 

Loss or theft of devices – If a laptop, smartphone, USB drive or other data storage devices gets stolen, lost or not disposed of properly and ends up in the wrong hands, this is a data breach.

Employee theft – This can happen when employees, especially those about to move on from their position, deliberately get access to protected data with malicious intent.

General human errors – Mistakes can happen to anyone, and some people accidentally send protected data to the wrong person, or upload it over public networks or compromise the servers where the data is stored.
