PERSONAL DATA BREACHES

Why do data breaches matter?

To ensure protection of personal data and the rights and freedoms of data subjects, the GDPR (articles 33 & 34) requires public and private organisations to take measures to prevent personal data breaches.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as zero risk. That’s why each organisation must also set up procedures to quickly respond to and fix security breaches that could impact personal data.

Personal data breaches represent a major challenge for an organisation’s brand image. They are getting increased attention in the media. An organisation that allows a breach is often viewed as negligent and not to be trusted with personal data.

What is a personal data breach?

A personal data breach can be defined as a security incident that compromises the confidentiality, integrity or availability of personal data. A breach may be deliberate or accidental, and with or without malicious intent.

The level of risk involved in personal data protection is proportional to the number of processing activities the organisation performs, regardless of their purpose.

Who is concerned by a personal data breach?

All public and private organisations are concerned. Organisations handling sensitive data are especially impacted by breaches that compromise data security.

From the moment an organisation starts to collect and process personal data, even indirectly, there is a risk.

All processors and contractors that process personal data do so on behalf of a data controller.
