Data Leak is connected with the exposure of some data or vulnerability. Data leaks may be caused by users gaining unauthorized access to a website, by improper developed apps or services, or by flaws in security policies. The distinctive feature of a data leak is that it’s the data transmission from an internal source to an external one. Most incidents may even be unintentional and because of human error.
