2016

Internal Revenue Service

Snap Chat

700 current and former Snapchat employees had their personal information stolen when hackers used a phishing scam to trick an employee into e-mailing them the private data.

2015

CareFirst

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield was yet another healthcare provider to feel the crippling effects of a data breach in 2015. At 1.1 million records exposed, the incident may seem minor when compared to the breaches at Anthem or Premera, but the breach is not insignificant.

UCLA

The wave of healthcare breaches in 2015 didn’t end with Premera and Carefirst; on July 17th UCLA Health announced that 4.5 million accounts are in extremely vulnerable states.
