Hi, I run a small business and there may have been unauthorised access to some customer information. Is this a data breach? And do we have to do anything about it legally? Our IT person has said everything is secure now.

I suggest you search ’notifiable data breach’ and work out whether this applies to your situation.

What is the nature of this suspected unauthorised access?
Have you been interfered with in a purely technical way?
Or are we talking about something more like a former employee stealing, say, a customer list?
