If 2017 was considered the “year of the data breach” as the number of incidents hit a new record high of 1,579, 2018 might get even more serious. Just a little more than halfway through 2018, the number and scale of data breaches that have already been reported is staggering. To name a few, In March, Under Armour announced that a breach affected an estimated 150 million users of its food and nutrition application; In April, Facebook notified 87 million members of its platform that their data had been shared; and in June, EXACTIS leaked a personal info database with 340 million records.
