The battle against cyber threats is an ongoing challenge. Unfortunately, 2023 has proven to be a watershed year for data breaches. Data compromises have surged to an all-time high in the U.S. This is based on data from the first nine months of the year. Meaning that numbers will only end up higher for the year.
The last data breach record was set in 2021. That year, 1,862 organizations reported data compromises. By September of 2023, that number had already reached 2,100.
In Q3 of 2023, the top data compromises were:
· HCA Healthcare
· The Freecycle Network
· IBM Consulting
· Tampa General Hospital
· PH Tech
This data underscores the relentless efforts of cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities. As well as access sensitive information. Let’s take a look at the main drivers of this increase.
