As a leader in privacy & security practices, the Identity Theft Resource Center has historically been at the forefront of data breach trends and a clearinghouse of breach analytics. We are always looking at our data analysis practices to ensure the best possible data integrity.

As of July 1, 2018, the Identity Theft Resource Center has transitioned to a monthly reporting structure that allows us to bring more depth to the reports that you have been receiving and a better tool to analyze trends and provide effective commentary on the state of breaches as they are made public. Please note that this will continue to be an organic process. Our reports will be reflective of the best information we have on the date of the report.

We will continue to track and aggregate emerging breaches as they become publicly available. We will be bringing some new breach products online in the coming months as part of this process as well.
