2018: Data Privacy and New Regulations Take Center Stage
A number of important data breach trends emerged in the first half of 2018. One of the most notable of these developments was the introduction of new data protection regulations including the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), New York's Cybersecurity Requirements for Financial Services Companies and Australia's Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) scheme. The rationale behind passing these standards is to help organizations better protect customers' privacy and security by design. In terms of data breach sources, malicious outsiders and accidental loss were at the top of the list in the first half of 2018. Those forces accounted for some of the biggest security incidents.
