World’s Biggest Data Breaches – Infographic

For a while I wanted to share this wonderful link:

http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/worlds-biggest-data-breaches-hacks/

on the Information security events which have happened since 2004.

Infographic in the link presents the information in a very bubbly manner. Data breach are presented as balloons, larger the number of records stolen in an attack the bigger the balloon of the event.

Information can be presented based on criteria which is to select the Method of leak, number of records stolen, data sensitivity and Organisation type.

There are links to the story behind the security event which makes the whole infographic more useful and interesting. Hope this Infographic is maintained in future as well.
