Report: Data Breaches In 2015 Exposed 140 Million Records

ITRC (Identity Theft Resource Center) has released a report that highlights again just how prevalent – and troubling – record-exposing data breaches have become.

ITRC collected 533 data breaches in 2015, exposing over 140 million records.

The four most heavily affected sectors account for 60% of exposed records: healthcare (35%), financial (10%), education (8.5%) and government/military (7.5%)

This is no real change from the situation last year – so the situation may not have become worse.

But it also appears that enterprises have not generally managed to reduce their exposure to the risk of data leakages!
