US Data Breaches Hit All-Time High

What do Aetna, Anthem, Chipotle, Dow Jones, Equifax, Forever 21, Hyatt Hotels, Kmart, Sabre, Trump Hotels, VeriFone, Verizon and Whole Foods Market have in common?

All suffered and disclosed a data breach in 2017. And they weren’t the only ones.

In fact, the Identity Theft Resource Center, a U.S. non-profit organization set up to help ID theft victims, reports that in 2017, the number of U.S. data breaches reached an all-time high.

In 2017, ITRC counted 1,579 U.S. breaches, up 45 percent from 2016. That doesn’t reflect every U.S. data breach last year.
