The new decade has begun relatively well, with a six-month low of only 61 disclosed cybersecurity incidents.

By comparison, 2019 saw an average of almost 80 data breaches and cyber attacks per month.

It’s not all good news, though. Several major incidents occurred in January, boosting the total number of breached records to a substantial 1,505,372,820.

That includes several worrying incidents involving UK organizations – which are highlighted in bold.
