2023 Third Party Data Breach Report
By Black Kite
This report, the result of a collective effort of Black Kite Researchers, focuses on what has changed in 2022, for better or for worse, compared to 2021. It highlights some of the lessons of past years and those still being learned within the changing cyber landscape. For this study, Black Kite Research analyzed 63 individual third party incidents, which ultimately resulted in more than 298 publicly-disclosed headline breaches and data leaks during the past year. These events inevitably caused thousands of other ripple-effect breaches throughout 2022. The report finalizes the lessons learned and relevant recommendations for the future.
