Identifying a personal information breach

  • access by an unauthorised third party
  • deliberate or accidental action (or inaction) by a controller
  • sending personal data to an incorrect recipient
  • computing devices containing personal data being lost or stolen
  • alteration of personal data without permission
  • loss of availability of personal data.
