Nearly 4,000 Breaches Disclosed in 2018

While it is likely that the breach activity of 2018 won’t reach the level of 2017, a look back at the first nine months suggests that 2018 is on pace to be another significant year for breaches, according to Risk Based Security.

The 2018 Q3 Data Breach QuickView Report found that 3,676 data compromise events were disclosed between 1 January and 30 September, exposing 3.6 billion records. However high those numbers might seem, and despite the consistent pace at which disclosures are reported, 2018 is not expected to see the record number of breaches reported in 2017.
