We would’ve been talking about an extraordinarily low number of breached records this month if it hadn’t been for a string of incidents in India, another Facebook gaffe and a massive blunder in China, in which a series of companies exposed almost 600 million citizens’ CVs.

Still, April 2019 saw a not completely disastrous 1,334,488,724 breached records. That’s better than last month, bringing the annual total to 5.64 billion and reducing the monthly average to 1.46 billion.

Here’s the list in full:

There’s a new compiler at the helm of our monthly list of data breaches, following the departure of IT Governance stalwart Lewis Morgan, who leaves me with some mighty big shoes to fill.

Fortunately – or, rather, unfortunately ­– the new regime has a familiar ring to it, with another mammoth list of data breaches. By our count, there were at least 2,100,480,045 records compromised in March.

That brings the 2019 running total to 4.53 billion, and raises the monthly average to 1.52 billion.

Here’s the list in full:

Cyber attacks

Ransomware

*Not included in the total number of records, as they are part of the 1.2 million records affected in the already-reported Wolverine Solutions incident.
