Security is an industry that changes rapidly, as should its terminology. Given the speed with which technology and its context evolves, it comes as no surprise that words that were once sufficient to express a security concept may before long cease to be useful in that same capacity. After a few significant, high profile privacy gaffes in the last few years, the word “breach” may either need to be expanded or replaced.
What is a breach?
A quick search for definitions of the word “breach” result in a few different, relevant options:
- A gap made by breaking through a wall, barrier, or defense.
- Breaking or failing to observe a law, standard, agreement, or code of conduct.
