Supplementary notes

*Data from 2005 to 2018 is taken from previous reports and refers to data breaches only.
The source adds the following information: "Data Compromise – The overall term used to refer to events where personal information is accessible by unauthorized individuals and/or for unintended purposes. This includes data breaches, data exposures, and data leaks.
- Data Breach – When unauthorized individuals access and/or remove personal information from the place where is it stored.
- Data Exposure - When personal information is available for access and/or removal from place where it is stored, but there is no evidence the information has been accessed by unauthorized individuals.
- Data Leaks involve personal information that is publicly available or willingly shared on social media and represents no or low risk when viewed as individual records; however, when aggregated, the sheer volume of personal information available in a single database creates risk to the data subjects and value for identity criminals who specialize in social engineering and phishing.
