Millions of Personally Identifiable Information Exposed

Government sector reported 268 incidents of data breaches which exposed 94 million personal identifiable information records.

In less than three years, the number of exposed government records tremendously increased leaving the public documents including those with personally identifiable information more vulnerable to unauthorized access. A recent report listed 268 successful incidents of data breaches among government sectors in the US. These figures are not much of a surprise especially with the ever-increasing rate of online threats*.

Government stated that they need to examine threats carefully so as to reduce risk of being hack again. With sensitive information compromised and made available to the public eyes, protecting critical infrastructures and information has been a great challenge for the government and other big organizations.
