4.5 Billion Personal Records Exposed in Q1 2019

In 2019, there appears to be no letup in the number of reported data breaches that have exposed sensitive personal information. In the first quarter of 2019, it is estimated that the total number of individual records exposed exceeded 4.5 billion. While not all of these records are in the hands of criminals, a significant portion of these records are being exploited, for financial gain. In March alone, illegally obtained records, consisting of 774 million email addresses and 21 million unique passwords, went on sale on the dark web.

With the escalating number of data breaches and compliance violations being reported in the media, it is no surprise that organizations see data security across their network as a major concern. According to a recent report, 77% of business managers said they were increasing their print security spending to combat this issue*.
