At 2018’s halfway point there are 668 breaches representing almost 23 million records exposed according to reports from the San Diego-based Identity Theft Resource Center and Providence, R.I.-based CyberScout (formerly IDT911).

The number of U.S. data breaches tracked through July 2, 2018 is less than 2017’s half-year high total of 791. However, this year some 22.5 million reported records exposed so far is almost double the 12.4 million records reported breached last year at this time (which came before Equifax’s 145.5 million exposed records).
