2011 Data Breach Rewind

361 million >> 144 million >> 4 million that’s the total number of records compromised each year from 2008 – 2010 as a result of data breaches, according to a joint Verizon and United States Secret Service report. After years of increasing losses climaxing in 2008 with a record-setting 361 million records compromised, it was not clear if the 2009 drop to 144 million was an aberration or a sign of things to come.
