Over the last 7 years, there have been over 50 data breaches across the globe with at least 1 million records affected per data breach. We've compiled a list of 53 (and growing) data breaches from major organizations including eBay, AOL, Facebook, Experian, Evernote and Target. A recent Ponemon Institute study estimates that nearly 110 million U.S adults have had their personal data compromised in the last 12 months. Organizations across the globe have to start asking WHEN they will breached, not IF.
