Supplementary notes

The ranked events and publications can be classed as leaktivism. Leaktivism is defined as the action of distributing confidential documents to the public in an attempt to directly impact the socio-economic and political spheres. It can be argued that the Panama Papers show that leaking information can be an impactful form of protest. Data leaks such as the Panama Papers or the Paradise Papers fall under a different category of data breaches than hacks affecting users of a service such as the Equifax Hack (2017) or the numerous Yahoo data breaches.
