A resource to explore data behind the 2014 breaches and all the biggest data breaches since 2005.
This Silk collects and structures information from the massive database maintained by Privacy Rights Clearinghouse on data breaches. We have included their information on the 2014 breaches and on the biggest breaches since 2005 (those with 500,000 or more leaked records known). The text details on each data breach is also from their analysis.
