Data Breach Statistics

As you all know I like to read security posts, blogs, tweets, news and articles from all over the place. I love finding infographics that illustrate something that would take many words. Below are two infographics that tell the story of data breaches for the first and second quarters of this year. Very interesting to see what the true metrics are even down to minutes, seconds and even by country.

Massive thanks to “Breach Level Index” for the stats and “Safenet” for the infographics.


This infographic just confirms that these data breaches are happening all the time at quite an alarming rate.

I work as an Associate Director for Protiviti in Virginia. My main focus is to ensure that SharePoint can either natively or with minimal customization meet the business requirement securely. I am currently a SharePoint MVP focused on Architecture but also cross the boundary into Development and Security. I am often found at user groups, conferences speaking, offering advice, spending time in the community, teaching my kids how to code, raspberry PI programming, hacking the planet and sometimes building Lego robots.
