5 Colleges With Data Breaches Larger Than Sony’s in 2014 : We have all heard about the damage caused by the Sony Hack. However, as I posted last week, the Sony Hack was not even one of the top thirty largest data breaches of 2014 in terms of number of files breached.
According to information from the massive database maintained by Privacy Rights Clearinghouse on data breaches, 30 educational institutions experienced data breaches in 2014. Five of the thirty schools actually had larger data breaches than the notorious Sony Hack. The leading cause was from hacking or malware.
