A data breach is an incident where someone breaks into your computer and steals confidential information stored on it. This can be done by someone physically accessing the device, or by getting in through a network connection. The attackers often target databases containing customer data and copy them. In other cases, perpetrators can modify or delete important information. This is also known as “data loss.”

A data breach can be compared to a situation when someone breaks into your room and steals your diary where you keep your secrets and most-prized mementos.
