Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "Not all the countries covered by this report make breach notification statistics publicly available, and many provided data for only part of the period covered by this report. We have, therefore, had to extrapolate the data to cover the full period. It is also possible that some of the breaches reported relate to the regime before GDPR."
