20 Banking Breaches So Far in 2010
Linda McGlasson of bankinfosecurity.com reports:
There have been 171 reported data breaches so far in 2010, and 20 of these involve financial services companies.
This means that in less than one quarter of the year, we already have seen nearly one-third of the 62 banking-related breaches reported in all of 2009.
The rest of the article is based on the Identity Theft Resource Center’s statistics and breach report for 2010, but since ITRC uses this site as a primary source, there are no breaches in the bankinfosecurity.com article that haven’t been covered here already.
