U.S. Data Breaches Almost Match Record High
U.S. data breaches in 2015 dropped only slightly below 2014’s record high, with hacking incidents accounting for more than one-third of the breaches, according to a new survey.
Organizations reported 781 breaches last year, the Identity Theft Resource Center said, compared with 783 in 2014. The ITRC, supported by information security firm IDT911, has been tracking breaches since 2005.
Hacking incidents rose 8.4% to a nine-year high of 37.9% in 2015. The next largest category, employee error or negligence, accounted for 14.9% of breaches.
