New Report on Frequency of Data Breaches

This is a follow-up to the Library Post of July 6th entitled List of Identity Theft Laws in US and Canada.

The blog beSpacific has a recent item about a new report by the U.S. government's Government Accountability Office on the frequency of data breaches.

"These incidents varied significantly in size and occurred across a wide range of entities, including federal, state, and local government agencies; retailers; financial institutions; colleges and universities; and medical facilities. The extent to which data breaches have resulted in identity theft is not well known, largely because of the difficulty of determining the source of the data used to commit identity theft".
