More Breach Stats

More security breach statistics are being published, from more sources than ever before.  None of the news coming from any of these sources appears to be good news.  The Bank Info Security website says that there have been 171 reported data breaches so far in 2010, and 20 of these involve financial services companies.  This means that in less than one quarter of the year, we already have seen nearly one-third of the 62 banking-related breaches reported in 2009.
