I am curious in general if there are any reporting that collects statistics about the security breaches? like per country per industry and revenue losses?

I am not interested in anonymized breaches like the ones of Verizon et al. I am interested in breaches admitted by their own companies, like (for example the LinkedIn breach. If there are none, I would appreciate community's help in collecting those for 2013.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Can i ask what you are interested in using this for? – Daisetsu Feb 12 '14 at 16:50
  • Check VERIS. although "most important" is an opinion term and inappropriate for SE. – Mark C. Wallace Feb 12 '14 at 16:51

One option, although it focuses on dataloss as opposed to specifically security breaches, would be the data loss db.

In terms of the most important breach of 2013 as mentioned in comments already that's subjective, but arguably one could suggest that the NSAs data loss was the most significant of last year


I generally read technology news to keep me update about security breaches. Few are the sources I generally used and you can read archive for 2013 references.
