Government data breaches continue
Government entities are leading the way in data breaches so far this year.
According to ITRC, a nonprofit organization whose work is supported by a Justice Department grant, the government and military sector were the chief offenders, accounting for 78 percent of all exposed records with just 22 breaches.
To be fair, the bulk of those records were lost in a single incident at the Arkansas Dept of Information Services. Among other sectors, banking and financial companies did the least amount of damage, with 12 breaches and 288 records exposed.
