Hackers stole nearly half a billion personal records in 2018

Hackers stole nearly 447 million consumer records containing sensitive personal information last year, according to the 2018 End-of-Year Data Breach Report from the Identity Theft Resource Center.

That’s a jump of 126 percent from 2017 (when roughly 198 million sensitive records were stolen) and a new record for the number of compromised files in a single year.
