A report released on Tuesday shows that the number of residents affected by data breaches in 2013 increased considerably compared to the previous year.

Data breaches affect us all and this report by the California Office of the Attorney General highlights the extent to which the breaches that make the headlines, such as Target, do ultimately have an impact on us.
