A Chronology of Data Breaches Reported Since the ChoicePoint Incident

This should be of interest to not only DBAs, but also system

administrators, managers, HR personnel, etc. There are many ways data

can be breached... it's not just an insecure database. Quite a few of

which underscore the human element. This is further reinforced by the

incidents where fraudsters and scam artists have been to penetrate

systems, usually through social engineering. Security isn't just a

technology solution. It also has to include people solutions.
