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.

Here, Prince examines data breaches distributed across five verticals: finance, health care, retail, government and education. However, keep in mind that the data used to extrapolate the charts, graphs, and representations for this study is by its very nature misleading.
