The Breach Level Index score, which rates the severity of a data breach, is based on factors such as total number of records breached, type of data in the records, source of the breach, and how the information was used. A score of 1 to 2.9 is minimal risk, 3 to 4.9 is moderate, 5 to 6.9 is critical, 7 to 8.9 is severe, and 9 to 10 is catastrophic. The scale shows that not all data breaches have the same impact on organizations.
