A "Personal Data Breach" is any act or omission that compromises the security, confidentiality, integrity or availability of personal information (Personal Data) or the physical, technical, administrative or organisational safeguards that we as a Church have put in place to protect it. The loss, or unauthorised access, disclosure (sharing) or acquisition, of Personal Data is a Personal Data Breach e.g. emailing Personal Data to the wrong person, leaving Personal Data in a public place where others can access it or losing a laptop or USB stick.
