imageDataLossDB is a research project aimed at documenting known and reported data loss incidents world-wide.

The Open Security Foundation, as well as our volunteers, feel that there is a distinct need for tools that provide unbiased, high quality data regarding data loss. There are no other open, downloadable, machine parse-able resources out there that facilitate research into this subject matter. By providing this sort of resource, we feel we can help accomplish the following:

  • Improve awareness of data security and identity theft threats to consumers.
  • Provide accurate statistics to CSO’s and CTO’s to assist them in decision making.
  • Provide governments with reliable statistics to assist with their consumer protection decisions and initiatives.
  • Assist legislators and citizens in measuring the effectiveness of breach notification laws.
  • Gain a better understanding of the effects of, and effectiveness of "compliance".

The following column shows the latest Data Loss incidents:
