List of data breaches and cyber attacks in March

March has been an interesting month. There haven’t been any major data breaches like last month’s incident at Anthem Inc., but a number of data breaches across the globe may have gone unnoticed.

As always, this list is incomplete owing to the vast number of breaches and how easily things are hidden. Please leave a comment if you have a story that you believe should be in this list.
