We’ve compiled a helpful table of U.S. data breaches reported in 2018. We define a data breach as a confirmed incident in which sensitive, confidential or otherwise protected data has been accessed and/or disclosed in an unauthorized fashion. This list is compiled from various sources, including press reports, government news releases and mainstream news articles and while we update it regularly, it is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all breaches in 2018.
If you’ve been a victim of a data breach, read our step-by-step guide, What to Do After a Data Breach.
