Tallying Up the Data Security Breaches

The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse has tallied up all of the data security breaches that have been announced following the ChoicePoint security breach back in February.  It has created a very helpful chart of the breaches (there are about 30 in all).  The chart indicates when each occurred; the company, organization, or agency involved; how each breach occurred; and the number of people affected.  The total number of people whose personal information was compromised is 5,476,150.  Wow!
