As data breaches continue, users find themselves with fewer sources to be notified when their digital data is acquired by hackers and cybercriminals.

Since 2018 we have been collecting information on data breaches and found some worrying trends. A few of our findings include: from January of 2020 to January 2021, there have been 2,205 defacements and 988 ransomware events. Of 67,529 breaches, 60% of notifications came from leak reports provided by hackers themselves.

That means if you want to know who’s being hacked, waiting for official disclosures can result in hackers building attacks with your confidential data. You have to go into the dark web and interact directly with hackers. Our three-year study shares trends and predictions we find and how internet users can stay informed about data breaches that directly impact them.
