As we end the near of August, it’s time to tally up the month’s breaches.
The volume of breaches is actually rather low in comparison to recent months; however the number of leaked records is a staggering 215,009,428.
However, it is worth pointing out that 130 million of those records are from a Chinese hotel chain.
As with every month, if I have missed anything – let me know by commenting below.
