ICO provides breakdown of data breach reports

The Information Commissioner’s Office has provided an interesting breakdown of breach reports for the first quarter of their fiscal year.  The data are provided by incident type and sector, here.

Not surprisingly, the largest incident type was “disclosed in error.” The healthcare sector and local government reported the most breaches, but then, not every entity has to report breaches, so their numbers may be a bit misleading in terms of relative losses.
