Enter the number of records breached, data sensitivity factor, and source vulnerability factor into the calculator to determine the Breach Level Index.

## Breach Level Index Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Breach Level Index (BLI).

BLI = (N * D * S) / 1000

Variables:

- BLI is the Breach Level Index
- N is the number of records breached
- D is the data sensitivity factor (scale of 1-10)
- S is the source vulnerability factor (scale of 1-10)

To calculate the Breach Level Index, multiply the number of records breached by the data sensitivity factor, then multiply the result by the source vulnerability factor. Divide the final result by 1000 to get the Breach Level Index.

## How to Calculate Breach Level Index?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Breach Level Index (BLI).

- First, determine the number of records breached (N).
- Next, determine the data sensitivity factor (D) on a scale of 1-10.
- Next, determine the source vulnerability factor (S) on a scale of 1-10.
- Next, gather the formula from above = BLI = (N * D * S) / 1000.
- Finally, calculate the Breach Level Index (BLI).
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Number of records breached (N) = 500

Data sensitivity factor (D) = 8

Source vulnerability factor (S) = 6
