New report: personal data of hundreds of millions compromised every year

According to the report, the leading trend in data breaches is “outside attacks, mostly by hackers for financial gain, but also some state-sponsored attacks, and some by hacktivists for political or moral reasons”. The report includes several case studies that detail the circumstances and consequences of some high-profile leaks.

The report also provides recommendations for organisations to step up the protection of their users’ personal data, as well as presenting comprehensive data and trends on data breaches.
