What Is a Security Breach?

Good faith acquisition of personal information by an individual is not a breach of the security of the system, provided that the personal information is not used for or subject to, unauthorized disclosure.

A security breach is an externally originating act that by-passes security policies, practices or procedures in a company and thus making its protected information vulnerable. A similar internal act on the other hand is not considered a security breach but a security violation.
