List of data breaches and cyber attacks in March 2018

Healthcare breaches are common in our monthly lists – but the number of incidents this month is insane. Take a look at the list, and you’ll quickly notice that the majority of them are healthcare related.
There’s a mixture of incidents in there, from a rogue employee to someone accidentally sending information to the wrong fax number.
Yes, I said fax…
This month I count 20,836,531 records leaked. This figure is likely to grow in the next few days – so be sure to check back soon. If you’d like a more regular update of breaches and cyber attacks, you should subscribe to our Daily Sentinel.
