What Is the Difference Between a Hack and a Breach?

The terms data breach and hack are often used interchangeably, but there are some differences: a breach is when data is

unintentionally left unsecured and vulnerable to hacking, as a result of malicious activity or from negligence.

A hack specifically refers to the activities of cyber attackers who purposely compromise IT infrastructure to steal information or

to hold systems ransom. If your data was part of a breach, it’s possible it was just left exposed online and was not stolen.

Likewise, not all hacks result in breaches.)
