878 million records breached

Thankfully, January was relatively quiet on the data breach front, following a chaotic end to 2020 in which we surpassed a thousand security incidents and 20 billion breached records.

So far this year, we’ve recorded 82 incidents and 878,168,975 breached records. That’s not great – particularly when you factor in that January is generally a quiet month across most sectors – but it’s progress.

You can find the full list of incidents that we recorded below, with those affecting UK incidents listed in bold.
