Tracking Hacking: The World’s Biggest Data Breaches

Before 2009, the majority of data breaches were the fault of human errors like misplaced hard drives and stolen laptops, or the efforts of “inside men” looking to make a profit by selling data to the highest bidder. Since then, the volume of malicious hacking has exploded relative to other forms of data loss.
Increasingly sophisticated hacking has altered the scale of data loss by orders of magnitude. Now larger hacks are increasingly becoming the norm as more and more of our data is being stored “in the cloud” and among devices on the Internet of Things.
