DataLossDB Enhancement: Primary Sources

http://datalossdb.org/primary_sources

OSF would like to announce a new enhancement to DataLossDB, called “Primary Sources”. Since many breaches are not announced in the media and are only available through notifications to various state agencies, DataLossDB now collects and displays breach notification letters as an additional resource.

The primary sources archive is a collection of breach notification letters sent to various jurisdictions in the United States. These were gathered mostly through the efforts of Chris Walsh, a security researcher, and OSF would like to express thanks and gratitude to Chris for helping to make this archive possible. Currently, a project is underway to accumulate many more such notices via the Freedom of Information Act, and its various local and state legislative cousins.

If you’re interested in getting involved with DataLossDB’s FOIA request project, please contact curators@datalossdb.org.
