    One might conclude that the number of records lost is wildly erratic from year to year, but 2009 shows a dramatic increase in the number of records lost on average with each incident.

New laws and regulations regarding data security breaches and disclosure laws affect the way in which nearly all organizations do business in the United States. This study, by Perimeter CTO Kevin Prince, provides a review of the scope and impact of data security breaches in an effort to encourage proactive modification to risk mitigation technologies, policies, and procedures that reduce exposure to a data breach incident.
