September 2020’s Data Breach and Cyber Attack Report – 35.6 Million Records Breached

Welcome to our September 2022 list of data breaches and cyber attacks. Compared to August, it was a comparatively quiet month, as we identified 88 publicly disclosed security incidents and 35,566,046 compromised records.

As always, you can find the full list below – although, perhaps for the last time, they are broken down into their respective categories. That’s because we’re looking for ways to improve the way we deliver this data.

Our blog has become the go-to source for monthly data breach statistics, and we’ve been producing this series for over seven years. The information has been cited in major publications, while we use it internally for both our quarterly reviews and annual infographics.

However, we’d like to know more about how our readers use this data, and what you’d like to see in this list in the future.

You can leave your comments and suggestions on our blog, or can start the conversation by getting in touch with us via LinkedIn or Twitter.
