Global Data Breaches 2018

In 2018, we observed a significant decline in the growth of the number of personal data leaks and a decrease in the total volume of leaked data as well as in the ‘leak capacity’. We can assume that businesses and public bodies that process personal data have decided to bear down on personal data protection violators. For instance, this is evidenced by a decrease in the share of leaks caused by external attacks. External attacks are known to be more sensitive to technical controls. In this respect, the efforts of information security services aimed at countering external threats have not been in vain.
