Data breaches halved

People wising up
Figures from Microsoft seem to indicate that people are wising up and worrying what is happening to their personal data. According to Redmond the number of data breaches resulting in the loss of personal data have almost halved this year compared to 2009 figures.

The most common way for data to be lost is through theft, loss of equipment and reckless data disposal. But the total incidents have fallen by some 46 per cent in the first half of 2010 compared to the same period last year.

Redmond thinks that the great unwashed are wising up and taking steps to protect themselves against cybercriminals. The company said it erased botnet infections from some 6.5 million computers globally using its Malicious Software Removal Tool, double that of the same time last year.
