According to a Risk Based Security survey, the number of data breaches in the first six months of the year is up 54 percent compared to the same period in 2018, and the number of data records exposed is up by 52 percent. More than 3,800 data breaches were recorded in those six months, revealing over 4.1 billion documents.

Data breaches may reveal information that ranges from the mundane to the worst possible, such as banking information, such as a public email address.
