Privacy Rights Clearinghouse has a list of data breaches which have occurred over the last year in the USA in which personal information has been compromised. Currently the total number is at 52,557,249.....and that's in one year.

As they say "The catalyst for reporting data breaches to the affected individuals has been the California law that requires notice of security breaches" and now it's a "nationwide" practice. 

I wonder would similar legislation in Europe/Ireland produce equivalent numbers.
