This cartoon is about evolution of data breaches, which began to grab headlines back in 2005, thanks in large part to California’s data breach notification law — the first of such laws. Since that time, every state has passed breach notification laws, and there are breach notification laws sprouting up around the world. Every day, we hear of more and more data breaches . . . and they are getting larger and larger.
