How to use breach in a sentence?

  1. State John Kerry:

    But there's not yet clarity to the breach.

  2. Josh Uretsky:

    This wasn't the first time we identified a bad breach in the NGP-VAN system, in retrospect, I got a little panicky because our data was totally exposed, too. We had to have an assessment, and understand of how broad the exposure was and I had to document it so that I could try to calm down and think about what actually happened so that I could figure out how to protect our stuff.

  3. Abbas Araqchi:

    The U.N. Security Council's resolution says clearly that the timeframe of agreement is 10 years, and Iran's case will be closed in the Security Council after that, if the U.S. and any other member of P5+1 say they want to adopt a new resolution after 10 years allowing sanctions to be re-imposed, it is the breach of Vienna agreement and has no credibility.

  4. Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile:

    Consistent with the different data breach notice laws in 47 states, The Democratic National Committee will be providing appropriate notice to affected individuals next week.

  5. Robert Menendez:

    You can be certain the mullahs (Iran's leaders) are not going to call us in Washington when they decide to breach the agreement. They're going to sneak out, covertly, gradually over time, when they think we're not looking.
