I wanted to share the above infographic from The Economist. which illustrates the spike in data breaches since 2005. Most notable: Medical records data breaches rose over 40% last year. Subcontractor and Employee negligence are also on the rise. A couple of positive takeaways is that there is apparently less insider theft and a decreasing percentage of breaches that include social security numbers.
