List of data breaches and cyber attacks in April 2018 – 72,611,721 records leaked

It’s a long list this month, but with the GDPR implementation, I imagine future lists will be even longer thanks to the introduction of mandatory data breach notifications. Maybe I’ll book June off.
This month’s list sees the usual mix of breaches and hacks, and as always is dominated by healthcare incidents.

One incident that really stands out is Equifax’s latest. The consumer credit reporting agency, which suffered a massive data breach in 2017 that exposed the personal information of nearly 150 million consumers, has been sending out the incorrect notification letters to a “small percentage” of those affected.

What is it they say? There’s no such thing as bad publicity? This month’s total of leaked records is 72,611,721.
