Ideas for Contributions

We’ve received a few ideas for ways to enhance the site and would like to thank everyone who has offered suggestions and input. While we work on some of these ideas, we also have a few suggestions that would help out with making this data more accurate and more complete:

1. Please contribute! Submitting new incidents is one of the ways to help out, but you can also add incident locations, various dates (such as notifications, arrests, and when the incidents actually occurred), and additional references from the media and other resources.

2. If you find an issue with a particular incident or the site as a whole, let us know. Mail us at curators@datalossdb.org

Other organizations, such as Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, Identity Theft Resource Center, and The Breach Blog also track data breaches. Information from their sites can easily be added to DataLossDB.org, so please check out their resources!

The Open Security Foundation DataLossDB.org’s Data Loss Mail List is available for recent news and discussion regarding data breaches.

Data Loss Mail List Has Moved!

The final touches have been put on the transition of the Data Loss Mail List to DataLossDB.org. Extra special thanks to Strange for helping make this happen! If there are any questions, comments, concerns, or problems, please let us know.

Beginning July 15, 2008, Open Security Foundation is the new host of DataLossDB, which will serve as a community-driven project for information about data breaches that involve personally identifying information.

Data Loss is a not-for-profit mail list that covers topics such as news releases regarding large-scale personal data loss and personal data theft incidents. Discussion about incidents, indictments, legislation, and recovery of lost or stolen personal data is encouraged. Posts and replies containing endorsements for commercial products and/or services, on or off list, are strongly discouraged by list moderators.

Currently, mail list traffic is considered low to moderate, depending on current events.
