As we get into 2011

Foreword

2010 wrapped up with a bang!  Major data breaches in Texas included The Houston Independent School District and the Dallas Police Department.  Houston's breach covered ten years worth of records on students, employees and vendors.  

We all know that there should be notification requirements and the majority of states do have some sort of reporting process but not all.  So you can't guarantee that you will be notified.  However the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse does keep a chronological list of reported breaches going back to 2005.  You can access that list through their website at http://www.privacyrights.org/data-breach.  It's a very long list and there are already entries for 2011!
