At first glance, February appears to be a big improvement cyber security-wise compared to the start of the year. The 632,595,960 breached records accounts for about a third of January’s total, and is considerably lower than the figures for this time last year.

Unfortunately, the number of breached records doesn’t tell the full story, as there were a whopping 105 incidents – making February 2020 the second leakiest month we’ve ever recorded.
