imageI have added a new feature, “InfoSec Site”, to the Discovering Identity blog.

I frequently come across sites on the web that are relevant to the Information Security community. I may not have time to blog about each in detail, but want to provide a way to announce that I have found the documents and provide a way to easily find them again.

A new category “InfoSec Site” has been added to the blog, so these documents can be easily selected via the “Select Category” drop down list box.  They can also be found by searching for key words.

My previous post is an example of a InfoSec Site post.  It references a useful Data  Breach reference site.  I hope you find it useful.

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:
