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.
