Data breaches happen when an unauthorized person gains access to sensitive or confidential information about you. Examples of this include your bank details, healthcare data, and even your social security number. It’s different from a data leak because the latter describes the accidental exposure of your data but not the action of somebody getting access to it. That said, the two things are closely connected. A data leak could make it easier for cybercriminals or hackers to steal your sensitive information by helping to facilitate their wrongful access to it. This can potentially lead to identity theft.
