The year 2018 produced what can only be described as a global explosion in data breaches. According to Business Insider, the top ten data breaches in 2018 impacted almost 2.5 billion users globally. In other words, almost one-third of the global population were victims of a data breach in 2018, absent overlap between the users impacted by the breaches. Those top breaches cut across business models and economic sectors, hitting airlines, hotels, social media, health, fitness, phone and other industries.
