Security breaches are GOING to happen. Unless the candidate was somehow directly complicit in the breach, or directly responsible for a security control that a threat actor compromised, I don't see a problem.

You only learn from experience, I would rather have someone who is battle scarred and learned from the experience.

Security breaches are very rarely caused by the security team. Often the security team are fighting hard for the controls necessary to prevent a breach and being knocked back for a variety of reasons. The breach will have given them war stories to consider
