The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a non-profit consumer organization, displays data breach types from over 8 broad information storage and management categories, and narrows down these types to include individual systems.
One of the data breach type categories is the Portable Device (PORT) type. This category specifies data breaches resulting from lost, discarded or stolen laptops, PDAs, Smartphones, portable memory devices, CDs, hard drives, data tapes, etc.
The PRC recorded more than 3.1 million data breaches so far in in the U.S alone. These records come from data gathered from only 58 data breach incidents that were reported publicly. Many more just go unreported for various reasons.
