Breach reports provide a quick and effective way for users to assess the impact of an account breach. These reports can be an effective resource for internal investigations and to comply with various privacy regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, etc. These regulations mandate disclosure of breach impact in a time-bound manner. Users can define a breach by entering details about the breached account and the duration of the breach. The breach report outlines the entire list of impacted subjects and breached personal information. The report is based on all the documents viewed, edited, and downloaded by the breached account during the time frame of the breach.
