The 21 biggest data breaches of the 21st century

From the hacking of TJX Companies in 2006, which exposed credit card details of 94 million customers, to the theft of personal data from Eventbrite in 2018 – the infographic below outlines the 21 biggest data breaches of the 21st century.

Courtesy of Optimum Security, the graphic categorises breaches by the data stolen, whether control system information, user account information or credit card information.

It also examines common causes of data breaches, how frequently data records are lost or stolen and best practices for avoiding a breach.
