Gemalto’s twice yearly Breach level Index (BLI) is a database that records all publically-reported global breaches. In the first half of 2015 the number of records breached was just under 246 million across 888 disclosed incidents (the true number is much higher), with mega-breaches accounting for 82 percent of the records compromised. However, the number of breached records was unknown for an astonishing 50 percent of incidents.
