The World in Data Breaches

With the huge increase in ecommerce/online purchases in 2020, Data security is now one of the largest concerns impacting the online world today. The increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks coupled with the overall lack of cybersecurity policies and measures has led to the greatest data breaches and the loss of data records on a global scale. The below graphic shows the countries that have the highest ratio of data records stolen relative to their population. With over 6 billion stolen records, the total number of records in the U.S. exceeds the population by 19 times. Despite their smaller populations, countries like Canada are among the most hacked. According to Symantec, these countries were affected by “mega breaches” — breaches affecting more than 10 million identities.
